Real Housewives of Vancouver Encroaches on the BC Film Industry

I thought had heard the last of Vancouver’s foray into the realm of gossip porn, but alas it was not to be. An article from is championing the series for giving the BC film industry a new lease on life as productions move to Toronto and Australia. To top it off, we might be getting our own version of the Bachelor. So depressing. Is this what everyone going through VFS and Capilano right now is dying to produce? Are they spending two years and 5 figures learning how to create imaginary creatures who can act an emote just so they can edit together a bunch of harpies who can do neither?

I will say this about the Real Housewives: That show makes Vancouver look frakking gorgeous. If we had more shows making good use of those helicopter shots of the Sea to Sky, who’s to say we wouldn’t see more scripted television?
