Siren (aka The Deep) – Season 1 (Freeform TV Series)
After filming its pilot in BC under the title “The Deep” last October, Siren season 1 starts filming in Vancouver and area today. The Freeform channel drama is centred around a small, coastal town called Bristol Cove. Old myths and rumours claim that Bristol Cove was once home to mermaids, but there was never any proof to back that up; until Ryn shows up in town. The mysterious girl not only substantiates the myths, but causes an outbreak of tension between the locals and the dangerous creatures of the sea.
