THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 01/30/2014 Director Named for Secrets & Lies, Max Steel, NC Oscar Nom Revoked and More.

secretsLiesABC’s Secrets and Lies has named their director.  It looks like Charles McDougall will be directing the pilot episode.  If you don’t know the name, you’ve definitely has seen his work at some point.  His credits span every network from primetime to premium including The Office, House of Cards, Sex and The City, as well as the pilot episode of the new show Resurrection, which is also from ABC, shooting in Atlanta. And here’s a little fun connection.  Our love Kevin Sizemore from Season One of Under the Dome will be playing Gary Humphrey in at least five episodes.  The Aussie turned US television series begins production in Wilmywood, February 21st.

Max-SteelNow moving on to Mattel, we knew that Max Steel has been pushed back, but now we have a bit of a clearer picture.  It’s looks like production will begins in March.  No casting details have been released as of yet.  I will keep you posted on those details.
oscarrevokedPeople Magazine came out with an article that put the number of NC Film Oscar Noms back to two again.  We have of course Iron Man 3 (VSX) as well as Bad Grandpa(Hair/Makeup) up for the golden statue.  The third Oscar nod went to Bruce Broughton, who was nominated for writing the music for Alone Yet Not Alone that filmed in Transylvania County here in North Carolina.  Bruce had his Best Original Song nomination taken away by the Academy yesterday.  Why? People went on to say:
“Broughton, who is a former member of the Academy’s Board of Governors and a current member of the Music Branch executive committee, emailed members of the branch to make them aware of his submission.”  
Apparently that is a HUGE No-No. Do you think he deserved to lose the Oscar Nom?  Post your thoughts below!  READ ARTICLE NOW

North Carolina is ranked third in the US by Good Jobs First for public access to its incentive packages. The article in the Winston-Salem Journal states that “North Carolina received a score of 48, trailing just Illinois at 65 and Michigan at 58.” READ ARTICLE NOW
