Happy Monday!  Hope you had a great weekend!

utd_wilmington_premiere_sunnyI reported over the weekend about Under the Dome now being licensed in 200 international markets.  If you combine that with Amazon’s streaming services of the show, CBS can feel confident they can afford $43 million per season.  UTD will be a summer showcase that CBS hopes to continue annually.  The press has gotten their hands on the Pilot episode, and their comments are nothing short of curious and fabulous:

 “the first hour is intriguing as hell and filled with a lot of storytelling promise. If viewers catch the pilot, they’ll be back for the next episode.”  ~ Tim Goodman, Hollywood Reporter

“the premiere episode did not disappoint and we are definitely hooked in for the summer. We hope you’re getting excited, because “Under the Dome” fans will surely enjoy this adaptation.” ~Andrea Reiher, Zap2It.

Under the Dome also made Entertainment Weekly’s Best-of summer TV list.

Make sure to listen to Sunny 104.5 THIS WEEK for your chance to win your tickets to the early premiere of Under the Dome with all the stars, writers and producers in attendance, June 20th, Thalian Hall, 6:30pm.  Oh, and I guess I should mention they will be shooting on the lot all day, so no star sightings today.

Now onto the fab folks of Tammy!  May I please be the first to welcome Kathy Bates to Wilmywood!  She will finally be shooting her big bash scene. If you remember the casting call about “Lesbians Wanted?”  Well, that call is what this week and next week is all about! Huge scene, with tons of Extras.  Today, however, they will be shooting at a few places, from driving scenes over the Cape Fear Memorial Bridge to  Winnie’s Tavern, on Burnett Blvd.  The interior shots at The Carolinian Inn on Market St. are currently underway.  You can count on Melissa McCarthy, Susan Sarandon, Gary Cole and Mark Duplass being on set and hilarity to ensue!

That just about does it for me; I will have more Wilmywood updates for you tomorrow morning and every weekday morning at 7:30am and 8:30am LIVE on Sunny 104.5.  Got Scoop?  Email me: sheila@1045sunnyfm.com.  Or message me on Wilmywood’s FB .  Or just post your comments below!  Until then, that’s a wrap!
