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.”
The series stars Swedish actress Katia Winter (Sleepy Hollow), Michael James Shawn (Limitless) and James Callis (Battlestar Galactica).
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.”
