RED ZONE has officially wrapped! After their last day at Screen Gems Studios, the cast and crew headed to the Blue Post and celebrated!
After speaking with Richard Ross, the Sr. VP of production at NBC/Universal, he told me that they are very pleased with what they are seeing so far. I am getting mixed intel, however, of whether or not they will come back to shoot here if the show gets picked up. I am thinking we will find our if red will get green at the Upfronts next month in New York which is May 14th for CBS.
Congrats to our local actor, Josh Cohen for landing a guest starring role on the pilot RED BAND SOCIETY from Steven Spielberg which was shot in Georgia.
