Saving Hope has quite a few ties to Canada. The show is based in Canada, and is also filmed in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and a few of the cast members are Canadian as well. Both Michael Shanks (Charlie) and Benjamin Ayres (Zachary) grew up in Kamloops, British Columbia. Erica Durance (Alex) is also from Canada, hailing from Calgary, Alberta.
Saving Hope‘s co-creators Malcom MacRury and Morwyn Brebner are known for their work on series such as Republic of Doyle and Rookie Blue, but as mentioned Saving Hope is something completely different. In describing the show’s conception, the Los Angeles Times wrote that MacRury and Brebner are “trying to combine a doctors-in-love medical soap opera modeled on Grey’s Anatomy with something completely different, a paranormal ghost story with elements of A Gifted Man and Ghost Whisperer.”
