Season 3 Now In Production in Toronto and Muskoka
TORONTO, Aug. 9 /CNW/ - Welcome to Paradise Falls, where everyone is
lying about something - or on someone! The campy dramatic primetime serial
Paradise Falls is back before the cameras for a third season as this Showcase
Original series continues to chronicle ever-twisting tales of murder, mystery
and steamy love affairs in a seemingly quaint little vacation spot nestled in
the woods of the Canadian North. However, this year what's going on behind
cottage doors will knock viewers' socks off: gay weddings gone awry at the
local B&B, mysterious sightings in the woods, creepy cults, missing bodies,
racy couples, love triangles - and for those interested in above-the-sheets
politics, a local election filled with dirty tricks.
Production has begun on 26 all-new half-hour episodes on location in
Toronto and Muskoka. This production order brings the total number of episodes
of Canada's cheekiest soap to a whopping 104. The new episodes are being shot
in HD and are scheduled to air on Showcase in Spring 2008.
