The location scouts wanted a place for a television segment that was going back to the past – Easterbrook’s certainly meets that criteria

Halton Regional Police Service will manage short road closures of two to five minutes for filming.

Preparation takes place during the day – 7 am to 7 pm

With filming starting at 7 pm am running through to 2 am

Wrap up will be done on Friday, Aug. 28 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The television segment has to do with going back into the past – that helps understand why they chose Easterbrooks,

Pam Brooks, who works at the Spring Garden Road location said the television show is about a time capsule and a bunch of scientists that want to stop a plague that is taking over the world and another bunch of people who don’t want the plague to end.

12 MONKEYS is a character-driven science fiction thriller about one man’s desperate attempt to save mankind using a dangerous and untested method of time travel. The small screen version of 12 MONKEYS will star Aaron Stanford (Nikita), Amanda Schull (Suits), Kirk Acevedo (Fringe) and Noah Bean (Nikita).

A portion of the location filming will be at EASTERBROOKS, mostly exterior scenes with 1 interior scene.


A blast from the past – the fifties style at Easterbrook’s was just what the television location scouts wanted.

“About twenty guys showed up a few weeks ago and looked the place over and decided we were what they wanted” said Brooks.

The production company GEP 12 Monkey Industries is located in Toronto. One of the production crew is a Burlington resident.

Segments of the television show can be found on Youtube.
