THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 05/20/2014 – What’s going down ‘Under the Dome’, Film Incentives, Locations today

Morning Wilmywood peeps!  It’s was CBS’s big press day yesterday and here’s what we learned about for the upcoming season two of Under the Dome.

UTD_Dean NorrisA more Gentle Big Jim?
Big Jim will have a “come to God or come to dome moment where he believes maybe his purpose in life should be that he shouldn’t be so nasty,” Norris says. “A different kind of Big Jim is required to survive under the dome.” Neal Baer adds, “It’s the season of transformation. This is the year where we will find out what they’re truly made of.” Just like the cocoon?

Max EhrichPeople get out? People get in?
“Maybe someone might possibly get out and maybe some might possibly get in,” Neal says. Max Ehrich plays Hunter who comes into the dome in episode 3. “but only digitally,” says Neal. “There’s a break in the dome that comes through where Internet messages can get through. In episode 3, Norrie and Joe start to get messages from this young man and we will actually meet him in Episode 8.” That is the episode they are working on now!

UTDmagnetic

The Dome has a magnetic personality. 
The Dome becomes magnetic, sending all the town’s metal appliances, vehicles, to the walls of the Dome. Won’t do well for anything living. Someone’s bound to receive death by toaster.

Eriq-La-SalleAn ER reunion?
Yep, don’t forget that Neal Baer was EP and writer of that 15 season show!   Sherry Stringfield (Big Jim’s late wife, Pauline) who was also on the medical drama is back for episode 10. ER alum Eriq La Salle will direct that upcoming episode.  She was filming here earlier in the season.  We will be glad to have her back!

Where’s everyone shooting today?

  • Under the Dome – Sunnyvale Dr.
  • Sleepy Hollow – Cotton Exchange – an overnight shoot
  • Max Steel – N. 5th St.

EDUCATE_NCFILM

Now, we have done all we can do, letting Gov. Pat McCrory know that we need his help.  It’s time to move on to phase two.  Kinda going back to where we started.  But now more than ever it is very important we reach out to our own legislators and tell them that we support our film incentives and want them to stay!  Don’t know who represents you?  No problem!  (See Below)  It is crucial that you only reach out to those in your district!  Hate to say it this way, but honestly, if you are not a voter in another legislator’s district they could not care less about what you have to say. Make sure in your calls or email to your own representatives you stay positive and let them know how film impacts your life.

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 04/08/2014 – Rick Catlin’s Counter against Impact Study, The Biggest Loser Front of Line Passes, Under the Dome and More.

ncfilmWell, the minute the Impact study from Dr. Robert Handfield came out, we knew the backlash would come. And so it begins. A report came out yesterday requested by Rick Catlin, a New Hanover County Republican. According to WWAY, The General Assembly’s Fiscal Research Division (FRD) concludes that Dr. Robert Handfield’s report that the Film Product Credit’s net contribution to the state is positive “is based on a series of misunderstandings of the state’s tax laws, invalid or overstated assumptions, and errors in accounting.” Dr. Handfield however is standing by his study. I have not fully examined the counter against the impact study. As soon as a I do, I will give you my consensus. READ STORY NOW

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.”

AhnOReillyOur Sleepy Hollow Heads are beyond busy as they are bringing yet another show to television. Yesterday we reported, that Kurtzman and Orci is bringing a CW pilot entitled, IDENTITY to Charleston, SC.  The show will star Ahna O’Reilly, who is best known for her supporting role as Elizabeth Leefolt in the The Help and of course Fruitvale Station.  Ahnna nabs the lead role as Mia.

UTDJim_LindaAt the TCA’s last week, a teaser trailer was played and interestingly enough, some weird things are happening, including Big Jim (Dean Norris) kissing Linda Esquivel (Natalie Martinez).  Ahhh!

According to EP Brian K. Vaughn,  “The second season is going to take us places the book never got to go, he’s bringing his own twists and turns. Stephen King gave us ideas we’ve never imagined. What’s outside [the dome] comes inside.”

UTDSet062013_0102It seems that a little more has come out about the new characters we talked about last month.  Like Sam, the crazy man in the woods, is actually Junior’s uncle.  He will be makin’ trouble for Barbie.    But that’s not the worst!  Neal Baer revealed that not one, but two of our favorite characters won’t live to see the second episode!   Ahhhhh!

CBS ANNOUNCES PREMIERE DATE FOR SUMMER SERIES “UNDER THE DOME”:

under-the-dome-cbs

“Under the Dome” Returns Monday, June 30, 10:00 PM With the Premiere Episode Written by Stephen King

          CBS today announced a premiere date for its summer event series—UNDER THE DOME, produced by Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television.

UNDER THE DOME returns for its sophomore season on Monday, June 30 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT).  The premiere episode will be written by Stephen King, whose bestselling novel the series is based on. UNDER THE DOME was last summer’s #1 program, averaging 15.06 million viewers and 3.9/11 in adults 18-49, ranking as the most-watched scripted summer series in 21 years.

UNDER THE DOME tells the story of a small town that is suddenly and inexplicably sealed off from the rest of the world by an enormous transparent dome.  The town’s inhabitants must deal with surviving the post-apocalyptic conditions while searching for answers to what this barrier is, where it came from, and if and when it will go away.

UNDER THE DOME is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Amblin Television.  Steven Spielberg, Stephen King, Neal Baer, Justin Falvey, Darryl Frank, Stacey Snider, Jack Bender and Brian K. Vaughan are executive producers.
