Inside the lives of SIX: March 26 – April 3, 2016

Another beautiful week here in Wilmywood and the cast of SIX is enjoying their stay with their new film family. Let’s see what they’ve been up to this week.

Many of the Team Six family stayed in Wilmington for the Easter weekend.

And some worked harder this past week than others.

There were lots of rehearsals and filming on the battleship and I’m pretty sure they like the location.

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY: Inside the lives of SIX this week!

Mornin’ Wilmywood! Hope all is well! Today, our SIX peeps are headed to the beach, but sorry, they’ll be on private property, so no stalking for you today 🙂

But hey…you can stalk them online all you want. In fact, I thought I would put together some great shots and tweets from the cast from the past week in Wilmington! Smile on!

Director for History Channel’s ‘Six’ revealed.

Well, look at this. Looks like we are keeping it in the NC Film family. Award-winning director Lesli Linka Glatter has signed on to direct the first two episodes of our History Channel show, Six. If you worked on the series Homeland, filmed in NC for the first few seasons, then you probably already know her. This makes complete sense as our UPM for Six is David Brightbill, who also worked on Homeland while it was in North Carolina.  Not only will she be directing, but she is also one of the Executive Producers of the Wilmywood filmed show.

Deadline got a great quote from Jana Bennett, President and General Manager of History. She says, “Not only is she an incredible talent, but A+E Networks has been a leader in providing more behind-the-camera opportunities for gifted female storytellers and incorporating her voice in a male-dominated landscape is vital to the success of the series.”

You don’t see many female directors, so I am pleased she will be taking on this role. That being said, our TNT  show Good Behavior‘s pilot episode, titled, “So you’re not an English teacher,”  was also directed by a woman whom the crew absolutely adored. Charlotte Sieling. Let’s hope she returns.
