New television series to be filmed in Orangeville area

April 22, 2021   ·   0 Comments

Filming for a new television series is about to get underway in Orangeville. Marble Media OU Productions Inc. will be using Orangeville for some of their exterior location base for the series called “Overlords and Underwoods”. Marblemedia OU Productions of Kleinburg will be filming in Orangeville for several days, starting on April 28, necessitating some traffic stoppages and some recreation park closures.

The family comedy follows the Underwoods, a North American family whose life is turned upside down when their distant cousin, Overlord, the second most-wanted villain in the universe, seeks refuge in their home after being forced into the intergalactic witness protection program. Filming will alternate between exterior set-ups in Orangeville and Mono and interior filming in a studio.

The film company has obtained a road occupancy permit for occasional traffic stoppages, generally in the areas of Second Avenue and Fourth Street, and Third Avenue between Second and Third Streets on April 28 and 29. Traffic control is to be provided, where needed, at the company’s expense.

Filming is also scheduled to take place in specific sections of several parks — Idyllwilde, Rotary, Princess of Wales, and Lions Sports – from April 28 to May 4.

The closures and stoppages are weather dependent so dates could change. Please watch the Town’s social media accounts for notifications.
