How is 2016 shaping up for NC Film?

It sure has been a while since I last blogged. Hell, there’s not a damn thing happening at the moment, so maybe we should look into the approaching new year. Here’s what I’ve been hearing. A LOT of conflicting information. One day I hear a production is definitely coming, people got interviewed, then the next day, it’s all up in the air. So lemme just give you a glimpse of what MIGHT happen. It’s the best I can do!

  1. Good Behavior – TV Series (TNT) – They shot the pilot here a couple of months ago. Will they return? Lord knows. From what I’ve heard, it is a traveling show, so it wouldn’t be necessary to stay in our area to shoot it.  So, mark this one a maybe. And, for the record, they have not announced a pick up yet, so, we might have to wait a bit longer.
  2. Untitled – TV series (CBS) – Back and Forth conflicting reports. A show that until about 2 months ago was a definite Wilmington pick up, now, I hear Toronto might be a possibility.
  3. Six – TV Series (History Channel) – A Weinstein Production that is sniffing around. If they do make Wilmington their home, it looks like a February start.
  4. Dirty Dancing – Telefilm (ABC) – Yes, you read that right. They are looking at Asheville. Again.  Hopefully it will be a go this time around. April is what I am seeing for things to get underway IF all things work out swimmingly. Abigail Breslin will play ‘Baby.’

None of these are set in stone at all. In fact, we might get one or two. That’s it. But I figured I would keep you in the loop. Now you know what I know thus far. I will keep you posted when I hear more.
