Production has started on the new CBC drama The Romeo Section

July 14, 2015

We are so thrilled to be part of this new series!  Production is underway on the Vancouver-based  show The Romeo Section, produced by Haddock Entertainment.

The show will air on CBC this fall, with Chris Haddock (Da Vinci’s Inquest, Intelligence) running the project.  Haddock is co-writing the series with co-executive producer Jesse McKeown.

Production is set to wrap on Oct. 20 and the first episode is scheduled to premiere on Wednesday, Oct. 14th.

Kevin Eastwood, the series co-producer noted that to capture a sleek modern look for the series, it will be shot with Epic-M Red Dragon camera technology. The use of the ultra-sensitive shooting equipment will give the show an “updated and “bold” look, especially for the show’s night scenes.

Laura Lightbown and Stephen Surjik are executive producing the series alongside Haddock and McKeown, with Arvi Liimatainen and John G. Lenic as producers.

The Romeo Section stars Andrew Airlie (Cedar CoveThe Killing50 Shades of Grey) as Wolfgang McGee, a university professor who covertly manages a group of spies that have initiated relationships with state intelligence personnel. Jemmy Chen (Rush), Juan Riedinger (SmallvilleContinuum), Eugene Lipinski (Sophie’s ChoiceIndiana Jones) and Stephanie Bennett (Big Eyes) star alongside Airlie.
