OKANAGAN - A new TV movie will be shot in the Okanagan this year, the first of two films being produced in the area before the new year.

The Okanagan Film Commission says in a news release that A Father's Nightmare, sequal to A Mother's Nightmare, commenced filming in the region this month. A Mother's Nightmare was shot in 2012 and was the first of nine movies Sepia Films brought to the Okanagan.

The film is directed by Canadian cinematographer Vic Sarin.

It stars Jessica Lowndes from 90210 as Vanessa, Joel Gretsch from NCIS, and Vancouver actress Kaitlyn Bernard from Stephen King's 1922.

Annabeth Gish from X Files will reprise her role as "Maddie" from A Mother's Nightmare.

Okanagan Film Commissioner Jon Summerland says he's encouraged by the popularity of the Okanagan as a film destination.

"We are doing things right when production companies are returning year after year with multiple productions," says Summerland in the release. "During the spring and summer we have been very busy with more projects in various stages of development than ever before, which is creating continued industry growth in this area. And animation in the region, as always, is growing steadily."
