The shoot will take place from Oct. 13-15 and film crews will be wrapping up Oct. 16 and 17.

In June, WorkSafeBC gave B.C.'s film industry the green-light to continue shoots, with some guidelines and restrictions in place.

The Okanagan's film industry is booming, according to the Okanagan Film Commissioner.

"The economic impact of film production in the Okanagan in 2020 will be upwards of $35 million, which will surpass previous years," he said in a press release sent out in September.

Movies of the week, like Hallmark and Lifetime films are booked and will be produced in the region into 2021. Two reality TV shows and multiple features will also be produced here.
