I see there's a new series on SciFi channel called "Haven". Supposed to take place in Haven, Maine, and is based on a Stephen King book.

Anyone know if this is filmed in Maine and if so, where?

Did a search to see if this was posted before but couldn't find anything.

I found online the show was filmed in Nova Scotia. Hopefully later episodes are more gripping; the first one was very disappointing.

I watched the show too, and then searched to see where it was filmed. The name of the town in Nova Scotia is Lunenberg. That pretty little town and it's surrounding areas are very believable as Maine. I was disappointed in the show too, but I was glad that no one tried to pull off the Maine accent! The closest anyone came was the very real Canadian accent of the "police chief"--phew! Hopefully it will improve as it goes along.

I use to live there in Lunenburg! It was fun for me watching the scenes around town, but the show was a disappointment. They filmed lots of movies in Nova Scotia that were suppose to be in Maine. Production costs are alot less than in the US and the film companies receive a great deal of incentives from the government. Most recently the made-for-tv movie "Jesse Stone" is also set in Lunenburg and Blue Rocks (just outside of town).

Default Haven, Maine

Sure is pretty scenery and nice town settings. To tell the truth I didn't pay that much attention to plot of story; more on the location aspect, kind of hoping that it was actually filmed in Maine.
