TNT’s ‘Good Behavior’ films next week at two Wilmington Staples

Yay! The first locations outside of EUE/Screen Gems have been released. Next Friday, October 9th, TNT’s Good Behavior starring Michelle Dockery and Juan Diego Botto will be filming at two of Wilmington’s staples.

They will be shooting at Salt Works Restaurant and in the parking lot at the NHC Arboretum, both of which are on Oleander Drive. You know we always talk about how small businesses benefit from film and here is a wonderful example. This will be an evening shootSalt works and the scenes will involve rain effects and a tour bus.  That’s all I know. I can tell you they will need about 20 extras or so for this scene, so make sure you keep an eye out on NCasting’s Facebook page for this call if you wanna do some background work.

They will also be shooting at a private home next Wednesday through Friday and the following week as well on Country Club Rd. Just a few extras will be needed for those shoots.

All dates are subject to change and are especially weather permitting.

Woop! Let’s get this NC Film party started!

NC Dept. of Commerce releases Prod Cos who got the Dirty Dancing Cash

If you are an avid reader of this here blog, The Wilmywood Daily, then you’ve known most of these deets for a while now. But there were a few things that we were waiting on. Like an official announcement from the Dept. of N.C. Commerce of what we already know AND which production got what from the Dirty Dancing money.  So, here we go.

  1. TNT’s Good Behavior (Wilmington, NC) – Eligible for up to $1.25 million.

3. HGTV’s Love it or List it (Raleigh/Durham, NC) – Eligible for up to $950,000.

We knew a reality show got the final bit of cash from the left over money , but we didn’t know which one.  Well, now we do.

Now with the Dirty Dancing money done with and since the Governor signed the budget today, we will now see who applies for the $30M in the grant for this fiscal year. It might be a little while since they have to implement all the new language what was changed.

TNT’s Drama ‘Good Behavior’ chooses male lead.

Oh my, my, my.  We have ourselves a male lead, ladies and gentleman!  Yes, we will be welcoming Spanish actor Juan Diego Botto to Wilmywood soon! He is set to play the character Javier opposite Michelle Dockery (Letty Dobesh) in the TNT drama pilot Good Behavior. Shooting begins October 7th right here in Wilmywood.

This is his first role on American television. Now here’s some deets about his character. According to Deadline, Javier is the magnetic contract killer who crosses paths with Letty when she overhears his plans to kill a client’s wife. Like Letty, Javier lives a dangerous life outside the system, and their attraction is immediate and complicated. When he discovers her intentions to undermine the murder plot, he’s impressed but undeterred. Javier seeks Letty out to kill her, but ends up pulling her into a dangerous, seductive working arrangement.

I repeat, this will be a dangerous and seductive relationship! And that’s just how WE like it, right?

Good Behavior is based on the Letty Dobesh books by our NC native Blake Crouch.

Who’s getting pumped about this pilot? Woop!
