There’s a town on a piece of land in Beaver Bank, but it’s unlike any other.
It’s full of mystery, monsters and fake buildings – and it was made for the television series By.
Produced in the Halifax area, the Paramount+ show is about a group of people who can’t escape a small town because the surrounding forests are full of man-eating humanoid creatures.
The set was built in 2021 for the show’s first season. It features 10 buildings, including a church, a restaurant and a mansion, which are used for both outdoor and indoor shooting.
“It’s just unbelievable how fast it all went and how believable it is when you drive through it — it’s actually a city,” Kevin Lewis, the show’s head of the scenic department, told CBC Radio’s Information Morning Nova Scotia.
