THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 04/23/2014 – UNDER THE DOME CAST CAN SING!!, How and Why, Max Steel and more.

HAPPY HUMP DAAAAYY my beautiful Wilmywood peeps! Let’s get you caught up with the latest!

michael-cera-john-hawkesFX’s How and Why is gearing up for a great shoot.  They have some fabulous sets at EUE/Screen Gems Studios.  It was a three week build and the stars have been trickling in as rehearsals are this week. Most of the pilot will be shot at Screen Gems, but you might spot them out and about sometime next week like at Roland Grise Middle School.  They are running camera tests this week as they get ready for their seven day shoot which begins this Monday!

Max-SteelMattel’s Max Steel in in their final week and prepping like mad!  So glad to say that Ana Villafane has arrived safely and is already training and rehearsing along with Ben Winchell for the start of production next week.  No down time for these young ones!  The producers are trickling in too, so we can hopefully get a chance to welcome them in person!  Bill and Julia, are ya listening?  Writer Christopher Yost is heading back this way for the duration as well, so welcome to Wilmywood, Christopher!

Under the Dome is running two units today and running all over the place. They are shooting at four different locations: on  Victoria Drive, Castle St, Chestnut St and at New Hanover High School. It’s a beautiful day for filming.

And OMG!  Did you have any idea that Grace Victoria Cox and Mackenzie Lintz could sing like this!  AMAZING LADIES!!!  Check it out! Are you ready to come sing on my show?

TWOAT-Cover_JasonMottYesterday, Harlequin released the cover of our handsome NC boy’s, sorry let me change that, New York Times bestselling author’s next book, or as I like to call it, Jason Mott‘s next bestseller!  The Wonder of All Things, is about, “a young girl who has the mysterious gift of healing and who suddenly finds herself having to decide how much she’s willing to give of herself in order to save the ones she loves most.”  The Senior Editor Erika Imranyi is extremely proud of not only the book, but it’s cover.

I love the way they put it: “From critically acclaimed and New York Times bestselling author Jason Mott comes a spellbinding tale of love, sacrifice and the power of miracles.”  Oh yeah, that’s hot!!
