Vancouver doesn’t get many American TV comedies filming here. This is a TV drama town. But TV Land’s single-camera comedy Impastor shot 10 episodes with Michael Rosenbaum as Buddy, a guy running from his debts in San Franciso who cons the residents of Ladner, Oregon,into thinking he’s their new gay pastor. Sara Rue co-stars as the pastor’s assistant and Mircea Monroe as the Head Trustee of Loomis Lutheran Church. Back in San Francisco, Aimee Garcia plays Buddy’s girlfriend, a bartender who has to deal with the cops, his criminal creditors, and snarky mother after his apparent “suicide”.
From writer Christopher Vane, Impastor used the village of Ladner in Delta as the small town of Ladner, Oregon — without having to change a sign.
