Just like that, pilot season is officially underway! This week, 4 of the 6 TV pilots that will be filming in Vancouver and area this season start production. The first of which being The Mission, hailing from ABC. Originally titled Safe Harbor, the series is centred around a woman named Oriana who ditched her legal career to pursue being a cop. The Los Angeles-set drama explores the complicated, stressful, yet sometimes humourous or rewarding lives of those on the force.

Filming started on Sunday in the 1000 Block of West Hastings Street in Vancouver with a scene that involved a police officer pulling over a vehicle and issuing a ticket via @antonvevo.

The Mission will continue filming in Vancouver and area until April 2nd.
