Major New TV Series Features Thompson-Nicola Region to Begin 2024

Kamloops, BC – February 16, 2024 – The Thompson-Nicola Film Commission (TNFC) is thrilled to share that the Thompson-Nicola region featured prominently in another major new TV series, serving as the launch point for this production.

The drama action series Tracker, starring Justin Hartley, filmed the opening scenes of its first episode at a location between Walhachin and Cache Creek in Electoral Area “I” (Blue Sky Country) of the Thompson-Nicola Regional District (TNRD). This is the second recent major motion picture that has utilized world-class film locations in this area of the TNRD, following the debut of Monarch: Legacy of Monsters starring Kurt Russell, which premiered in November 2023.

“Desert landscapes of the TNRD are generally a huge draw for film productions of all sizes. This area where Tracker was filmed is also conveniently located close to several communities and main amenities for film crews,” said Terri Hadwin, TNRD Film Commissioner.

Tracker, based on the book The Never Game by Jeffery Deaver, centres on the story of survivalist Colter Shaw, who travels the country in his airstream to help police and private citizens solve crimes and find missing people – until a new case changes everything. The series debuted on Sunday, February 11, 2024, with new episodes to be released each Sunday. All 13 episodes can be watched on Paramount+, CTV, or CBS.

“To have a premiere immediately following the Super Bowl is generally viewed as a pinnacle for releasing a new series on television,” Hadwin continued. “It’s a feather in the cap for Tracker, and for the Thompson-Nicola region. Our landscapes are the feature of the main poster materials for this series. And we are easy to find in the pilot episode, as many exciting scenes were filmed in our backyard.”
