The Disney Channel has employed Hollyoaks producer Lime Pictures to create its first live action show in the UK, with Evermoor set to be filmed at Arley Hall in Warrington. Shooting begins in April, with the nationality of the actor playing the key star of the trans-Atlantic production yet to be decided.
The premise of the show sounds pretty miserable. It's a fish-out-of-water concept in which an urban US teen is shipped into a British haunted house (♪ she started one little fight and her mom got scared ♪), with something about magic and being able to predict the future involved. It's Sabrina the Teenage Witch without the laughter track. [BBC]
