SHOOT: ABC Pilot SEA OF FIRE Starts Filming With Jack Davenport in a New Westminster House – Updated


Teen Porno. Murder. Secrets of a Small Town. For a TV pilot described as a cross between Twin Peaks and The Killing, this house near Queens Park in New Westminster looks much too charming with its white picket fence, big American flag, hanging flower baskets and inviting porch to be a Sea of Fire location. But maybe that’s the point. Could this be the home of one of the three teen girls whose appearance in a pornographic film leads to a disappearance and a murder, events which expose the seedy underbelly of idyllic American town Serenity Falls.

UPDATE: Turns out this is the home of local sheriff Marty Kesowich (Jack Davenport), his wife Laura Lee (Lilli Birdsell) and their seemingly perfect daughter Merel (Isabelle Cornish).

An American adaption of the Dutch series Vuurzee, Sea of Fire is about an FBI agent Leah Pierce (Dexter’s Jennifer Carpenter) and local sheriff Marty Kesowich (Davenport)’s investigation into the fallout from the teen porno on the girls’ families and others in the small town. Does the uncompromising FBI agent alienate everyone with her blunt questions or can she and the sheriff find a way to work together? Does the sheriff delve into the crimes or cover up his daughter Merel (Cornish)’s involvement.
The other families: Reverend Bobby (Jeffrey Nordling) and Adine McAllister (Amanda Detmer) are parents to Rudy (Keir Gilchrist) and the missing girl Jane (Morgan Taylor Campbell). Pete (Michael Trucco) and Kristen Harper (Christina Chang) are parents to Sonya (Zoe Soul) and Xander (Kevin G. Shmidt), the troubled boyfriend of the missing Jane.

Sea of Fire placed this U.S. post box on the street for [an early morning cycling scene of Sheriff Kesowich (Jack Davenport) which I just missed, arriving to see Davenport in his runners, virtually unrecognizable bundled up in a black down coat.]



Sea of Fire is written by Jenna Banns of Scandal and directed by Allison Liddi-Brown.

Filming started March 4th and is expected to wrap March 20th.
