Upcoming Fox series Backstrom does some inventive camera work, like last Friday’s shoot on the upper walkway of the curtain wall at the central Vancouver Public Library. Where are the cameras? Across the atrium on the 7th floor of the library behind glass. The scene: Portland Serious Crimes Unit Detective Nicole Gravely (Genevieve Angelson) meets with District Attorney Steven Kines (Ben Hollingsworth). Gravely is second-in-command to self-destructive Everett Backstrom (The Office’s Rainn Wilson) and not only tasked with dealing with Backstrom’s boorish behaviour, she has to make sure his unorthodox methods hold up in court too. Hence the meeting.
Based on the Swedish book series by Leif G. W. Persson, Backstrom was developed by Hart Hanson (Bones, Traders). Genevieve Angelson as Portland Serious Crime Unit’s Detective Nicole Gravely.
