First off let’s congratulate Asheville, NC native Caleb Johnson who took it home last night and was deemed the season 13 winner of American Idol. Woo Hoo! Congrats Caleb!
Via Director Gary Wheeler, some good news came out about the TV movie, The Perfect Summer. The Christian Bookstore DVD release will be on June 3rd and Target and Walmart will be on August 5th. Plus UPtv will be re-premiering the flick in June and it is already selling in the foreign market. Great job cast and crew!!
The Headless Horseman will be back. British actor Neil Jackson, who guest starred in Episode 7 of the first season of the drama Sleepy Hollow, is set to heavily recur on the Fox series in Season 2. He will reprise his role as Abraham Von Brunt aka the Headless Horseman.
Yesterday, we made another tiny step towards keeping our NC film incentives. Rep. Susi Hamilton’s bill to eliminate the end of North Carolina’s film incentives (the sunset) overcame its first hurdle in the General Assembly today. HB 1142 passed its first reading as the House of Representatives referred it to the Finance Committee. The next step will be for the Finance Committee to consider the proposal, which has support from members of both parties. Read HB 1142 NOW
