Last April, Spike TV announced that production for the original scripted series was beginning this summer and slated to air in 2017.
Two sources close to the production said Wednesday (June 22) that filming is expected to begin next week in the empty Target store in Bedford.
The Bedford Place Mall building will reportedly be used as studio space for the harrowing series.
The Target store has been shuttered since April 2015, when the American retailer closed down all of their 133 Canadian locations after failing to crack the Canadian market.
On Wednesday, there were no obvious signs of TV production but a RONA employee said their store and other surrounding businesses received a notice last week about the filming of a television series.
The employee said the notice indicated production will begin in July and be filmed over a six-month period. A portion of the back parking lot of the mall will be used to park production trailers.
The notice did not disclose the name of the series or the production company. David Schwarz, senior vice-president of communications for Spike TV, said in an emailed statement on Wednesday that production details cannot be confirmed at this time.
