It’s the day of love, so let’s LOVE on some Wilmywood shall, we! What I am already loving is the top three stars cast all have a Wilmywood connection. Ryan Phillippe w/ I Know What You Did Last Summer, Natalie Martinez w/ Under the Dome and Juliette Lewis w/ Hick. Who else that has stepped before the sands of Wrightsville Beach will grace us with their presence?

To Gillian on Her 37th Birthday
The latest winter storm charged fiercely upon the South, making Atlanta shut down production for a few days. However, the NC Film crew didn’t let the latest polar vortex stop them from getting things done Under the Dome, and there certainly is a lot to do. The construction team is currently the busiest, rebuilding last season’s sets at EUE/Screen Gems Studios and from what I hear building some new ones.
Writer/Showrunner of Under the Dome, Dr. Neal Baer will be honored on Feb. 27 by City Year Denver for his contributions on health, education and other issues involving youth. “I am committed to finding ways to keep kids in school,” he told the Denver Post. Baer will screen his NC shot documentary about new approaches to education, “If You Build It,” during the event. But that’s not all he said. You know they had to deliver questions about Season 2 of Under the Dome.
Baer told the Denver Post, “It’s bigger, bolder than last season. In the first five minutes you see the demise of one character; two die in the first episode. No one is safe.”
