The scenic and historic community of Brigus is serving as a backdrop for much of this week for the popular CBC television drama Republic of Doyle.
A drove of actors and crewmembers descended on the small Conception Bay North town today (Sept. 20) to film scenes from an upcoming episode called “In Brigus.
About a dozen local residents also took part as "background performers."
The episode will air in late February as part of the show’s Season 4 lineup.
Filming will continue on Sunday, and on Monday if necessary.
