An entire false front street was constructed along Pioneer Avenue, the main road in Agassiz. Interior scenes were shot in a studio in Burnaby. The resulting 10-episode show is based on a best selling book by Blake Crouch, and follows a Secret Service agent on a mission to find two missing federal agents in a small town in the mountains.

The show will be broadcast to 125 countries, according to a release from Fox. In addition to Dillon and Gugino, Wayward Pines stars Melissa Leo, Shannyn Sossamon, Juliette Lewis and Terrence Howard. One of the executive producers of the show is M. Night. Shyamalan.
