THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 08/20/2014 – Orlando Jones does Ice Bucket Challenge with a twist, Locations, Win a trip to LA

Our Domie, Stephen King is taking on the Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS.

The Sleepy Hollow gang is also ready to freeze for the great cause.  Neil Jackson, Lyndie Greenwood and John Noble got in on the action.

Orlando Jones has accepted the challenge as well, but with a twist. In the wake of the disruption, sadness and violence breaking out in Ferguson, MO over the death of the unarmed teen, Michael Brown, Orlando blends the two in his own way. Good job Mr. Jones.

Sleepy Hollow is back downtown creeping through the Nutt St. alleyway.

Secrets & Lies is shooting on Chestnut St.


How did Under the Dome do in the ratings Monday night? It stayed flat with a 1.5 (A18-49) and they gathered 7.3M viewers. Last week, UTD has 6.9M viewers, so up in that regard.  Is it enough for 3rd season pickup? Yes. They were #1 in viewers for the night and they have gained viewers for four straight weeks.


REMINDER: The Remaining, has been adapted into a graphic novel by Kingstone Comics, a Leesburg Christian comic book publisher.  It will be available in retail stores this Friday.

ICYMI: How  would you like to head to the West Coast in September, hang with the stars of The Remaining and snag an autographed copy of the script?  Well, you can do just that!  You could win a 3 days and 2 night trip which includes: hotel, rental car, meals, and all the fun! ENTER NOWtscc3

FILM INCENTIVES UPDATE:  This is gonna sound strange, well, hell these past 4 months have been beyond strange, but as long as HB1224 fails, film as we know it, is not dead.  Even if they adjourn sine die, our legislators can get called backed in and the dialogue continues and the film conversation can begin once again.  I know what you’re thinking, we are losing productions everyday this crap goes on.  True.  It drives me crazy, too.  But looking into the future, this is the best we got at the moment. Yesterday, the House didn’t pass 1224, but it could come back to the table today.

The General Assembly Schedule at the present moment is:

  • Rules Committee: 10am
  • House: 11am
  • Senate: 4pm

I know it’s a long exhausting fight, trust me! LOL.  But it is not over.

FilmPhotoREMINDER: Anyone who benefits from the NC Film Industry, please gather with us @ Battleship Park on Sat. August 23rd 2014@ 4:00pm.

They will be documenting the residents and families of Southeastern North Carolina with a massive group photograph of all those who will be affected by the loss of the Film Incentives.  Brownie Harris will be the fab photog. RSVP NOW
