Hello and Howdy! Happy Earth Day to ya! And if you see fellow Wilmington crew member Shaun O’Rourke, make sure to tell him Happy Birthday!
Looks like our Domies will be filming in two locations today. The Burgaw Courthouse as well as in Currie. Now, we were chatting about this on Facebook yesterday as some more fun deets came out about season 2 of Under the Dome. Two things of note. I asked about this last season! Stephen King is known for having a cameo in every movie he has done. Sometimes it’s like Where’s Waldo, and sometimes he has a one liner. So, I kept an eye out for him last season, but to no avail.
Well, FINALLY this season, King will do his staple thang! He will be a townsfolk in the season premiere which airs June 30th! And secondly, here it is again: The Six Degrees of Wilmywood! Under the Dome‘s premiere episode is titled ‘Heads will Roll’ Coincidence? I think not! Speaking of Sleepy Hollow, production begins on its sophomore season in just 13 days!
The upfronts are just around the corner. That’s when we normally find out a lot of intel about our favorite Wilmywood shot shows and especially our new ones! Like ABC’s Secrets and Lies and Red Zone, which has been renamed Field of Play. All of our shows have a ton of competition, however, so we will be eagerly waiting on which WIlmywood shows make the cut! Check out the enitre fall pilot list from my homies over at EW.com
Woo Hoo! Our leading man for Max Steel, Ben Winchell arrived in Wilmywood over the weekend, and today his female counter part joins us here, too! A big Wilmywood welcome to Ana Villafane. But back to Mr. Ben. Marty has a specialty photo double need for Max Steel that will audition today or tomorrow! Here is Marty’s Post:
