M. Night Shyamalan is mixing it up a bit with his new show Wayward Pines. The Chester County-based film director stepping out of the realm of two-hour thrillers and onto the small screen as the Executive Producer for the 10-episode TV miniseries event. He also took this shoot outside of the Philadelphia region. The mind-bending, what-the-hell-is-going-on-type show is based in Idaho, but was shot in Vancouver.

Don’t worry, Shyamalan (and Philly) fans, there will be something familiar about the setting at Wayward Pines–it’s houses. Shyamalan recently spoke with Ellen Gray of the Daily News:

“Pines” required a particular kind of landscape, he said, “so I took the Philly towns and put them in Vancouver, where we shot.”

The houses, whose facades were inspired by suburban Philadelphia towns, are meant to represent an idealized “American moment in time,” he said.

Wayward Pines was developed from the three-book series called Pines by Blake Crouch and offers up a killer cast, including Matt Dillon, Terrence Howard, Carla Gugino, Melissa Leo, Juliette Lewis and Hope Davis. The show airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. at FOX. Ticket has the trailer here.
