CBS series ‘Blood & Treasure’ shooting in Montreal

Pop Goes The News — CBS is shooting its new action-adventure series Blood & Treasure in Montreal this summer.

The 13-episode drama is scheduled to air on the network next summer.

Blood & Treasure is about an antiquities expert and an art thief who pair up to catch a terrorist who finances his attacks with stolen treasures.

“As they crisscross the globe hunting their target,” reads a release from CBS, “they unexpectedly find themselves at the centre of a 2,000-year-old battle for the cradle of civilization.”

Marc Webb (The Amazing Spider-Man) will reportedly direct episodes written by Matt Federman and Stephen Scaia (the team behind Limitless and the Toronto-shot series Warehouse 13.)

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series is “an ambitious project” and “large in scope.”
