Global: Houdini and Doyle begins shooting in Toronto

Published

on


Highly anticipated 10 part mystery series Houdini and Doyle has just begun production in Toronto. The series will air on Global in Canada, ITV Encore in the UK and Fox in the US in 2016.

Series Hails From Canadian Executive Producers David Titcher and David Hoselton and House Creator David Shore.

Starring Michael Weston (Six Feet Under, House) and Stephen Mangan (Episodes) along with Canadian actress Rebecca Liddiard (Between, MsLabelled), the mystery adventure drama series, scheduled to premiere on Global in 2016, is shooting the final two episodes of the 10-episode drama on location in Toronto and Southern Ontario until mid December. A Canada/UK treaty co-production from Shaftesbury and Big Talk Productions, the first eight episodes of the series were filmed in Manchester, UK from July to November 2015.

“Comprised of such a talented team of producers, writers, and actors, Houdini & Doyle will be a strong addition to Global’s 2016 lineup,” said Christine Shipton, Senior Vice President and Chief Creative Officer, Shaw Media. “We are thrilled to have this unique co-production film the final two episodes right here in Toronto.”

“It’s wonderful to have David Shore and David Hoselton back home in Canada,” said Christina Jennings, Chairman and CEO, Shaftesbury. “Kudos to Shaftesbury US head Maggie Murphy for finding this project and an inspired creative team to lead it.”

“I’m thrilled to be back working at home; even if it is in 1901,” said David Shore, Executive Producer.

“Houdini & Doyle is a paranormal period piece – think Edwardian X-Files – with a sense of humour,” added David Hoselton, Executive Producer.

In Houdini & Doyle, Harry Houdini (Michael Weston) – master magician, escape artist and paranormal debunker – and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (Stephen Mangan) – prolific writer, creator of “Sherlock Holmes” and paranormal aficionado – grudgingly join forces in 1901 London and Canada to investigate unsolved and inexplicable crimes with a supernatural slant in collaboration with New Scotland Yard Constable Adelaide Stratton (Rebecca Liddiard). Inspired by true events, the series will draw heavily on the rich history of the period.

The 10-episode drama was ordered straight to series for ITV Encore in the UK and Global in Canada and licensed in the US on FOX. Jeff Renfroe (Remedy, Haven, Beauty and the Beast) is serving as director of the final two episodes filmed in Canada.

Produced in association with Shaw Media, ITV Encore and Sony Pictures Television, Houdini & Doyle is a Canada/UK treaty co-production from Shaftesbury (Canada) and Big Talk Productions (UK) in association with Shore Z Productions. The series is executive produced by David Shore (House), David Titcher (The Librarians) and David Hoselton (House, Chicago P.D.) along with Christina Jennings, Maggie Murphy and Scott Garvie for Shaftesbury and Kenton Allen, Matthew Justice and Luke Alkin for Big Talk Productions. Producers are Suzanne Colvin-Goulding (Canada) and Adrian Sturges (UK). The series is distributed by Sony Pictures Television.
