CBC and Temple Street Productions announce the start of production on the highly-anticipated original series CAMP X, shooting on location in Budapest, Hungary until the end of the October. The eight-episode, one-hour series is set to air in early 2015.
CAMP X is an emotionally driven adventure drama, set in the thrilling and dangerous world of WWII espionage and covert operations. It follows the stories of a team of highly skilled young recruits – Canadian, American and British – torn from their ordinary lives to train as agents in an ultra-secret facility on the shores of Lake Ontario. Inspired by remarkable true stories, CAMP X is about the origin of spycraft.
“We are excited to bring life to this captivating story that weaves pieces of Canada’s history into a rich and dramatic narrative,” said Sally Catto, general manager of programming, CBC. “We are encouraged by the strong caliber of talent that has banded together to create CAMP X and can’t wait for its premiere this winter.”
