Canada and in particular, Nova Scotia, is increasingly becoming a popular Hollywood film destination due to the promotion of films and refunds provided by the government to foreign products. Lindsey Springer, the show’s main producer, explains how they chose to nominate Nova Scotia for filming, “We talked to the film commission, saw a few pictures of the scene, scouted it, and liked it. We thought it should be this place. This is it. “
