Ruby Skye P.I. Season 2: It’s a Go!
Story2.OH announced today that principal photography has begun on The Haunted Library, an all new Ruby Skye P.I. mystery.
The award-winning tween web series returns for a second season with 12 more cliffhanger packed episodes, reuniting Season 1 leads Madison Cheeatow (Ruby Skye), Marlee Maslove (Hailey Skye), Elena Gorgevska (Diana Naughton) and Kevin Gutierrez (Griffin).
Joining the cast are newcomers Scott Beaudin (My Babysitter’s A Vampire, Haven), Laura DeCarteret (My Babysitter’s A Vampire), Rosemary Dunsmore (Road to Avonlea), Geri Hall (This Hour Has 22 Minutes), Jordan Prentice (American Pie 5, In Bruges) and Shaun Shetty (Call Me Fritz, Camp Rock 2).
Production will take place in Toronto with The Emmanuel College Library at the University of Toronto serving as the primary location.
Created for 8 to 14 year olds, Ruby Skye, P.I. tells the story of 17-year-old would-be detective Ruby Skye.
Season 2 finds Ruby up to her old tricks — tracking ghosts and hunting for a lost will in an attempt to save her favourite library from being torn down.
Following on literacy themes established in Season 1, The Haunted Library weaves popular titles from young adult fiction into a contemporary whodunit where the dead use email and Nerdfighter symbols point the way to important clues.
