WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD – 06/24/2013 It’s Dome Day!

IT’S HERE!  The television event we have all been waiting for!!  Under The Dome premieres on CBS at 10pm TONIGHT!  If you go to bed early, set your DVRs!!  I did get a chance to see the pilot Thursday night but you can bet your sweet A- I am watching it again!  FYI – if you got kids 14 and younger, you might have to shut their eyes in the first 5 min.  Just sayin’!  

Today is also OFFICIALLY by proclamation from our Mayor Billy Saffo, DOME DAY! He made the declaration last Thursday at the red carpet premiere.  So, Happy Dome Day everyone!

I had a VERY busy weekend putting together all those fabulous Dome Day interviews!  We have more than a dozen of them, so check them out.  My favorites has to be Brian K Vaughan and Jack Bender‘s because they give real testimonials of just how great our crew base is, why the tax incentives need to stay and the locations are perfect for their needs. Oh, and did I mention the Wilmywood blog is getting quite popular, even with the writers and producers 🙂  Check it out:

SEE ALL THE INTERVIEWS NOW!  The Under the Dome folks will be shooting in Burgaw on Right St and Fremont St. You will see the beautiful boys today:  Mike Vogel, Alexander Koch, Colin Ford and Dean Norris.

There is a HUGE viewing party at Hell’s Kitchen (118 Princess St , Downtown Wilmington) tonight and every Monday night at 10pm.

Congrats to our Militia Man, Giancarlo Esposito.  The brilliant actor who plays Major Tom Neville on NBC’s Revolution is getting his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.  Yay!  He of course is also known for his role as Gus on  series Breaking Bad.

David Andrews w/ Billy Dickson – IQ-145

WECT uncovered something cool!   We get to see one of our own on the big screen!  Local cutie David  Andrews plays a naval commander in the  Brad Pitt zombie flick, World War Z.   He’s featured in the trailers for the film. Check him out now!     You go boy!

Mullet Alert:  Danny McBride and his Eastbound and Down crew head to ever-so-fun Jungle Rapids today.  You can get a glimpse of Danny as well as Steve Little, Katy Mixon and Elizabeth de Razzo.

ON TV TODAY: catch Melissa McCarthy on Kelly & Michael and David Letterman!  Craig Ferguson’s got Toni Collette!  Plus The Talk’s got Dean Norris and Rachelle LeFevre!

We should have more details sometime this week about some more productions coming into Wilmywood, so hold onto your hats!!  Plus, this week as well, we should have more details on Sleepy Hollow!

That just about does it for me; I will have more Wilmywood updates for you tomorrow morning and every weekday morning at 7:30am & 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!

DOME DAY INTERVIEWS: Rachelle LeFevre, Brian K. Vaughan, Jolene Purdy, Jack Bender

Yeah!  Got some great interviews with a great film family from Under the Dome.  Looks like I have a lot of work to do over the weekend.  Here’s the first four interviews. Plenty more to come!


WHAT’S UP IN WILMYWOOD – 06/21/2013

June 20, 2013 – Wilmington Mayor Billy Saffo hands Stephen King a key to the city during the Under The Dome Red Carpet Premiere

The red carpet came alive last night as about 90 % of the cast came out and celebrated with the locals at the Under The Dome Red Carpet Premiere.  We have tons of video footage and photos.  As soon as I can put it all together I will be releasing it piece by piece starting today.  A HUGE thank you to C-G Productions (CG’s Website,   Twitter and Facebook) and David Pasqua for shooting the event!  They were amazing!  Check out all the photos from the event:

Our handsome Mayor Billy Saffo greeted the crowd and read the proclamation, honored Stephen King with a key to the city, then  declared June 24th Dome Day!  The Under the Dome folks are filming at Waterford in Leland, then move to stage for the rest of the night.

MsPennyDirectorToday is the last day on Tammy 😦  I will miss that cast big time!  But I have a feeling Miss Penny (Susan Sarandon’s angel) will miss Wilmington even more.  For their last hoorah, they will be on Blue Clay Road (between N. Kerr & N. College Rd.) and also 2610 N. 23rd Street.  Melissa McCarthy, Susan Sarandon and the gang will be on set.  And finally, Mullet Alert: Eastbound and Down will be shooting on 21st and Chestnut today.

PHOTO GALLERY: On the set of Under the Dome

Sheila Brothers got a chance to chat and hang out with the cast, writers and producers of Under the Dome.  Photographer David Pasqua was on hand to capture the many moments.
