The CW will be airing the opening episode of In The Dark this evening (Thursday, April 4) in America at 9/8c. In The Dark comprises of 13 episodes which will be broadcast weekly in the US. The series has yet to find a home in the UK with Netflix or even E4 as possible broadcasters or In The Dark.
Where is In The Dark on The CW set?
In The Dark appears to be set in contemporary America even though it’s filmed in Canada.
However, the setting appears to be less the focus in this character-driven drama.
The series concentrates on blind young woman Murphy (played by Perry Mattfeld), who ends up on a mission to find the person who killed her best friend and homeless drug dealer, Tyson.
In The Dark serves a journey of discovery for Murphy, who up until this point has been a perpetual drunk with little purpose or ambition and spends most of her time napping or smoking cigarettes while working at her parents’ guide dogs school.
A lot of the action will be taking place at the guide dog school called Breaking Blind, where Murphy works alongside co-worker Felix (Morgan Krantz).
The show will also see some scenes set in Murphy’s apartment which she lives in with flatmate Jess (Brooke Markham).
There will also be action around the city as Murphy tries to find out who murdered Tyson and what happened to his body.
Speaking about her character, actress Mattfeld explained: “Murphy’s a mess. She’s not much more different than any other troubled woman.
“She kind of has a drinking issue, doesn’t have a great relationship with her parents… she’s a little loose with the guys and she’s blind.”
Mattfeld went on to say: “She has a lot of walls up. I think she is in the dark all the time, so there’s a little bit of a defence that Murphy has about herself.
“She has a special relationship with Tyson. I think she always sees him like a little brother and she finds his body.”
The star added: “I think we’ll get to see Murphy pick herself up a little bit, fall again – it’s definitely not going to happen overnight.”
Where is In The Dark on The CW filmed?
In The Dark was filmed in Toronto, Ontario at various locations in and around the area.
The pilot was shot back in March 2018 before In The Dark received an order for a full series from The CW.
The rest of the series was filmed in August last year before wrapping in December.
The CW films a number of shows in Canada with Playing Dead marking another Toronto-based production.
Meanwhile, programmes including Riverdale, Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl are all filmed in Vancouver.
