Lifetime’s Deadly Wives Club: Details of Filming Locations and Cast

The David I. Strasser directorial, Lifetime’s ‘Deadly Wives Club,’ is a thriller drama movie that centers upon Anita Jackson and her husband, Jack, who are parents to an adopted daughter named Jilly. When the family of three relocates to an exclusive neighborhood, Anita gets an invitation to join the exclusive Wives Club of the area, keeping her busy with classy lunches, play dates, and parties every once in a while. Things take a strange turn when she notices that the members of the Wives Club seem more eager to befriend her daughter, Jilly, than her, forming a cloud of suspicion in her mind about their intentions.

Anita’s suspicion turns into concern when she finds out that one of the former members of the club had died under mysterious circumstances. Certain that the other wives were responsible for the murder, Anita tries to bring the truth to light. Alternately titled ‘Death in the Cul-De-Sac,’ the story mostly unfolds in the new neighborhood where Anita and her family move into. Although the residential area appears safe and sophisticated, there lies a sense of mystery and eeriness beneath the facade.

Where Was Deadly Wives Club Filmed?

‘Deadly Wives Club’ was shot in its entirety in British Columbia, particularly in Kelowna. Principal photography for the Lifetime production commenced in October 2023 and wrapped up in a matter of about three weeks in November of the same year. Alana Hawley Purvis took to social media and expressed her gratitude for being a part of the cast. She wrote, “Couldn’t have asked for more wonderful people to work with on set!”

Kelowna, British Columbia

All the pivotal sequences for ‘Deadly Wives Club’ were lensed in and around the city of Kelowna, which lies on Okanagan Lake in British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley. The aerial shots of different parts of the city showcase the vastness and versatility of Kelowna as the Okanagan Lake and other landmarks like Black Knight Mountain, Knox Mountain Park, the William R. Bennett Bridge, and Bellevue Canyon, can be spotted in the backdrop. The filming unit turned several neighborhoods and streets into film sets for the production of the thriller movie.

For instance, the cast and crew members were spotted taping key portions on Water Street & Bernard Avenue as several storefronts could be noticed in the background, such as Blenz Coffee, Paramount Theatre, and many more. In order to lens the indoor scenes of the residences, the director and his team possibly took over a few actual residential properties. Besides ‘Deadly Wives Club,’ Kelowna has served as a host to many productions over the years, including ‘A Wife’s Nightmare,’ ‘Daughter of the Wolf,’ ‘A Score to Settle,’ ‘A Daughter’s Nightmare,’ ‘Killing for Extra Credit,’ and ‘My Mom Made Me Do It.’
