‘Follow Me to Daisy Hills’ Was Filmed in Winnipeg
Follow Me to Daisy Hills (also known as Love at Daisy Hills) was filmed last fall in Winnipeg, Busby told TV Goodness. She said it was her first time to the city and she discovered a lot there. “It’s like one of those hidden gems where there’s so much art going on within the city, there’s so much music and so many artists. A lot of sports players … and actors come from Winnipeg,” she said.
The general store featured in the building, TV Goodness shared, is a real standalone store about 45 minutes outside of Winnipeg. It wasn’t part of the set. She said it was owned by a man who had inherited it and wasn’t used much in real life.
Here’s a casting call for people to be in the movie, posted in September 2019:
The casting call was looking for men and women from 18 to early 50s of all ethnicities.
