Dillon Casey’s Web Series ‘Backpackers’ Location Hotspots
Creative Director Jay Bennett Shares Digital Series ‘Backpackers’ Filming Hotspots, While Star Dillon Casey Tweets About Prague
Dillon Casey’s latest tweets have been centered around Europe, with a visit to the Czech Republic on his list (not to mention the sex and parties which are sure to follow him around). Former Nikita operative and funny-man, Casey has been cast in digital series Backpackers as “Brandon” – wingman to soon-to-be-wed “Ryan.” In the series, the two traipse around Europe with every intention of curing Ryan’s pre-wedding jitters. Casey promises us that he’s “the party animal” and Brandon’s main role is to “help him [Ryan] get laid.” Whether this promiscuous plan works, we are yet to find out.
While Casey has been tweeting about his European desires, Digital and Creative Director of Backpackers Jay Bennett has been scouting Europe – searching Paris, Prague and Italy for the perfect hotspots to film the web series. Bennett took a small team with him as he scoured high and low for the right backdrop to use in the digital show. Backpackers is being developed for CW Digital and CTV by Smokebomb Entertainment, and the show began shooting in late April 2013.
