ABC Entertainment Group announced this summer that it had selected the recently opened Park City Film StudiosTM to be its base for the production of the first season of a new prime time series, Blood & Oil. "It's highly unusual for a brand new studio to be selected for major production," said Greg Ericksen, owner and developer of Park City Film Studios®. "So, you can imagine that we are very excited to be working with ABC on this project."
Park City Film Studios is a 374,000 square foot, mixed-use facility which includes three soundstages, production offices, and an array of studio services including a digital motion capture stage and technology and special effects stages. Blood & Oil has occupied the entire production facility including three 15,000 square foot sound stages, a mill and outfitted production offices.
According to the The Utah Film Commission, the new TV drama is the first network television series in 10 years to be filmed on location in Utah. Blood & Oil is scheduled to air on Sunday nights and premiered on Sept. 27, 2015. The drama series features Don Johnson of "Miami Vice," and popular newcomers, Chace Crawford of "Gossip Girl," and Rebecca Rittenhouse of "Red Band Society." Park City and Utah's diverse landscape are playing the part of North Dakota in this series.
