There’s an article online by the Northumberland News regarding the filming of Happy Town and parking issues while Town Hall was transformed into the local police station for the show.
Stage 49 Ltd. began filming the ABC series Happy Town during the evening of Wednesday, Oct. 14, and ran through Saturday morning. They’ll resume shooting on the evening of Wednesday, Oct. 21, and wrap in the morning of Saturday, Oct. 24.
The two-hour ABC pilot that was originally filmed in Port Hope last March has been picked up as a six episode mid-season replacement expected to air in March.
Happy Town will chronicle the fallout for a new sheriff and the residents of a small Minnesota town when it experiences its first murder in several years. ‘October Road’ star Geoff Stults plays the sheriff and Amy Acker from ‘Angel’ plays his wife.
In other news, IMDB has added a new episode title to the list (Amy is listed as being in the episode) which suggests that the show may have been picked up for a full season, perhaps? However, I’ve yet to find an official press release from ABC regarding this or the mid-season schedule announcement. Stay tuned!
