by Sheila Brothers and April Vickery

Gooood Morning!  Happy 1st day of Spring!  We made it!
MattLauerAnd to kick off such a glorious day let’s thank the Today Show who gave us a shoutout! My buddy Martin reported that Matt Lauer announced, “This morning’s sunrise comes from beautiful Wilmington, NC.” They do a couple of sunrise shots each morning from around the country , and they couldn’t have picked a better city!

Are we sleep deprived yet again? If you guessed, “Yes!” you are one smart cookie! We were up late streaming Paleyfest with the Sleepy Hollow cast! The Twitter world was a mad house last night as the SH cast and creation team took the stage at Paleyfest!

Paley_Madness

What a GREAT Q & A session!! What will happen in S2? Well, how about the return of beloved characters? (Dead doesn’t exactly equal gone on this show and we all know sometimes you can run, but you can’t hide.) How about new characters? According to the writing and creative team, “amazing new foot soldiers are coming and we need to be on the look out for a new dangerous creation: Headless faces.” Spooky!

rheartnetworkWar & redemption are themes of course! Will the Leftenant be left in purgatory? Can Ichabod give his son the ultimate “Time Out?” Who’s dead? Who’s coming back to life? Who’s going to be the law man now that Frank is locked up?

Watching the live stream of the cast last night was amazing! This show grabs you in and keeps you there in the midst of the supernatural, the scary and the outrageous because above it all, there is such a great dynamic of friendship and family in the storyline and very obviously in real life with these cast mates!

We can’t wait to have SH back in Wilmywood.  Production begins in May. Catch all the PaleyFest Q & A highlights NOW  and Follow @Wilmywood on Twitter to recap all the live tweets from the cast.

Dwight-YoakamDwight Yoakam is brigin’ his cowboy hat Under the Dome. And Entertainment weekly claims his character has been there the entire time!  WHAT?   Lyle Chumley is his name.  He runs the Chester’s Mill’s barbershop. And you know there will be some serious conflict as he was supposedly romantically involved with Big Jim’s dead wife!   READ MORE NOW AT EW

The Under the Dome folks head over the bridge to Winnabow today.

DavidPaymerGot some more great cast news for RED ZONE!  With over 200 film and TV titles under his belt, David Paymer had joined the cast. Lately, he’s been directing and producing HART OF DIXIE. We will play the role of “Banks.”  Welcome to WIlmywood, David!

David CarzellAlso, let’s welcome David Carzell back to Wilmywood! He is no stranger to the southeast as he has worked on ARMY WIVES in South Carolina and he was here in Wilmywood not long ago for Greg Kinnear’s STUCK IN LOVE.

Soo, it looks like Mason Dye will be too busy with Teen Wolf to play Mark on REDZONE.  So, in comes Cameron Deane Stewart.  Make that two Disney kids in the zone.  Crazy fast switch out.  So, I’m thinkin’ here’s what went down.  Mason said, “gotta keep it real with my outrageous fans in the teen drama world!  Peace Out.” Producers were frightened and were scrambling until Stefanie Scott chimes in…”So, I know this guy…” and BAM the new Mark was born!

::::Awkward pause as April gives Sheila a glaring glance::::

Sheila: What?  It could’ve happened! ::::sigh::::  Okay, fiiiinnneeee! April will wrap this up.  Take it sister!

cameron_deane_stewartCameron Deane Stewart is in! He’ll fit in on set with his Disney alum co-star Stefanie Scott. He was known as “Steven” on iCarly and “Jace” on Austin & Ally. Cameron Deane is best known for his role in the big screen in Pitch Perfect with Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson, but he has quit a following with the Indie crowd for his role in “GEOGRAPHY CLUB”.

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 03/19/2014 – Director for The Longest Ride Named, UPM for FX, Under the Dome, Red Zone, Actor’s Arsenal

WILMYWOOD_READHEARWATCH_BLOG

Howdy and Happy Hump Day!  This morning was super fun as Executive Producer/Director of UNDER THE DOME Jack Bender paid our studios a visit at Sunny 104.5.  We chatted about all things Dome and his Art Show that is coming up this Saturday. The interview is NOW posted.

JackInStudio

The Wilma W. Daniels Gallery (200 Hanover St.) is  showcasing Under the Dome’s Jack Bender’s art NOW through the 29th of this month.  Three of his pieces will be from Season One  of Under the Dome.  Think Pink Stars!  We will also get a sneak peek at some of the beautiful pieces for the upcoming season. Gallery hours are Tuesday-Friday 12pm-5pm.  However, a special night is reserved for you to mingle with the artist that is Jack Bender this Saturday, March 22nd from 6pm-9pm.

The Under the Dome folks started out smoothly on Chestnut St, but soon had to evacuate due to a gas leak.  One crew member said, “The gas smell is so bad, you can smell it all the way to Castle Street.”  But as they say, the show must go on, so the crew is quickly rearranging their shoot day.  Missing a day of filming is something that simply just can’t happen!  Good luck, kids!

MartySiuCongratulations are in order for a few peeps!  Yesterday we spilled the beans and let the world know our beautiful Marty Siu landed the extras casting gig for MAX STEEL. IF you would like to work on that feature film, READ MORE NOW  The Red Zone folks are shooting at Indepedence Mall and weather permitting they will be shooting at Maides Park tonight!

tillmanNicholas Sparks’ The Longest Ride has named their director.  Congrats to George Tillman, Jr.! Tillman, best known for ‘SOUL FOOD’ (1997) with Vanessa Williams and Vivica Fox as well as ‘MEN OF HONOR’ (2000) with Robert DeNiro and Cuba Gooding Jr. This time around, George will be bringing the love story of “Sophia” and “Luke” to life.  George also spent 3 years ensuring the film INEVITABLE DEFEAT OF MISTER AND PETE written by Michael Starrbury would be  made. It’s debut was at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.

michael-cera-john-hawkesAnd finally, congrats and welcome home David Brightbill!  FX’s How & Why just nabbed him from the Charlotte area.  He’s been working on Homeland for the last couple of seasons, but he coming back home to Wilmywood.  He’s been a 1st and 2nd AD on some of shows as far back as One Tree Hill, but he quickly moved up to be a production manager as well as a co-producer.  FX’s How and Why has deemed him UPM for the pilot.  Woo Hoo!  So glad you are back David!

kevin-sizemoreThis Friday, our favorite Domie, Kevin Sizemore will join us on The Sunny Morning Show.   He will be on ABC’s Resurrection this Sunday and guess who else is popping up?  Well, when asked, he said “I think it’s this Sunday.”  LOL.  Remember Reverend Lester Coggins of Under the Dome?  It’s Ned Bellamy.  So we got some Wilmywood love on the Georgia shot show, based on the book The Returned by our Bolton, North Carolina boy Jason Mott.

Wilmywood would like to give a special anniversary shout out to a family owned business that has helps our local talent prepare for film and TV auditions. ACTORS ARSENAL was founded in 2013 by married actor couple Ron and Allie who left L.A. for the opportunities offered here in Wilmington.

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 03/06/2014 Under the Dome, Secrets & Lies, Sleepy Hollow, The Five

Oh Happy Friday Eve!  Crappy weather, however, thinking about Daylight Savings Time this weekend makes it a little better!  That “dark at 5 o’clock” crap has got to go! Sorry, just had to get that off my chest.  Okay, let’s do this!

Under the Dome remains undercover at the sound stages as a slew of international press fills the stages, including the adorable Michael Yo from The Insider.  He’s having way too much fun here in Wilmywood!

secretsLies

Our ABC show, Secrets & Lies, is up to their usual Porter’s Neck shoot.  Not too much to report.  Extras Casting Director for SNL, Ashli Bogart, will head back to South Carolina in a few weeks after she completes her time on our show here in Wilmywood.  If you remember, we blogged about the show Identity that is shooting in South Carolina.  This pilot for the CW is coming from our Sleepy Hollow producers, Kurtzman and Orci.  So, congrats on the gig Ashli, but hurry back!

Sleepy-Hollow-TitleAndrea Müller, Contributor for The Wilmywood Daily in Mannheim, Germany reported this morning that Sleepy Hollow got the axe in Germany.  She cited the network being the cause, not the audience.  READ STORY NOW

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – Sleepy Hollow Ratings, ABC, CBS and Tom Mison

Good Lord what a crazy day it was on Monday!  We got so much information in! Okay so let’s take it all in! We’ve had to rearrange the 2014 Wilmywood Film Slate Now the production schedule looks like this:

  • ABC’s Secret and Lies – Offices opening this week.  Production begins February 21st.
  • CBS’s Under the Dome Season 2 – Offices slowly opening this week.  Production begins March 4th.
  • FOX’s Sleepy Hollow Season 2 – Fox Pres. Reilly says production begins in March, but that could translate to offices opening, we will wait and see on that.
  • Mattel’s Max Steel: Waiting, originally scheduled to be first out of the gate, is now in a holding pattern.
  • Bolden!: Waiting

tscc3

kevin_reilly_tcaYesterday, we learned that Fox Chairman Kevin Reilly told reporters at the Television Critics Association winter press tour, that there will definitely be 13 episodes but there might be a few more. AND the best part was that he said this fall their will be no interruptions!  God, that drove me nuts!  Baseball, the holidays!  Geesh!  Also,  Reilly boasted about our show’s success, saying it was one of the three highest-rated dramas of the year. and he cannot wait until the finale airs.  “The finale is fantastic.  I can’t wait until you see it.”

Thanks to everyone submitting questions for the Tom Mison Interview.  I have received over 100 and I had to narrow them down!  I will be posting the interview online, so don’t freak out, you won’t miss it!  While you wait, let’s see how last night’s episode of Sleepy Hollow, “Vessel” fared in the ratings!

sleepyhollow111i

Last time we dove into ratings was December 10th!  Geesh! The Golem (Episode 10) numbers were a tick down from Episode 9, averaging a 2.1 (A18-49) with 6.5 million viewers.  Not bad after taking a week off.  Now, how about taking a month off?  Vessel‘s ratings sailed in at a 2.2 in A18-49 with 6.4 million viewers last night.

ABCYesterday, we also said congrats to Barbara D’Alessandro and David Hartley, both working on ABC’s Secrets & Lies, the Aussie turned American crime drama.  The big dogs are already in town.  ABC has given a straight-to-series order for the show and has given the green light to a 10-episode adaptation of the upcoming Australian series.  No word yet if they will continue production here after the pilot.  As soon as I know, you will know!

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 12/18/2013 – Variety Helps Spread the Message, Hank and Jed, PCAs and more…

Howdy and Happy Hump Day! Yesterday was a fun-filled crazy day for film blogging. Not, one, not two, but three were posted as so much was going on.  I will recap and add some goodies this morning!

Yesterday on the Wilmywood Daily Facebook page, I deemed these folks as the Best NC Film Family ever! Hilarious! This Raleigh, NC Family has got more than 6 million views since last week! If you haven’t seen this video yet, you will LOVE it! 

ncFLAGThe Governor’s office sent out a press release yesterday.  Film and Television Production spent at least $254 Million in North Carolina this year. That’s direct in state spending folks!  It’s been one the most successful years in NC Film history. The release stated that production companies generated more than 4,000 “well-paying” crew positions and nearly 25,000 job opportunities, including talent and background extra positions. There were more than 5,700 production days in more than 30 counties this year. READ PRESS RELEASE NOW

keepncA lot of people read this press release and liked what was included, but many were more intrigued about what was not included:  the reason for such high direct in state spending. The 25% film incentive.  An interesting omission, indeed.  Perhaps they thought is was a given?   The economic impact numbers help make our case that the incentives should not end on Jan. 1, 2015.  Regardless, we will continue the push until the big vote in May.

Ted-Johnson-VarietyI wanted to thank Ted Johnson, the senior editor for Variety for bringing this message to Hollywood.  Did you know that some people in LA think that our incentives don’t even exist anymore?  Crazy.  Production Companies and studios need to know that North Carolina is still very much a viable option.  So, thanks Ted, I think this article will be a big help.  READ HIS ARTICLE NOW

Variety also brings us this wonderful news about our NC shot  Homeland. The  season finale pulled in its largest audience to date.  READ ARTICLE NOW!

sleepy-hollow1

Goooood Mornin’ Wilmywood!  Let’s kick off the blog this morning with a Sleepy Hollow concern from one of the entertainment bloggers out there in the world.  HW Hill was a little confused about Sleepy Hollow missing an episode, saying, “I guess it didn’t get a full episode order, or it was just meant to be that short.”

No worries, HWHills!  I got your back.  My sources over at Fox set the record straight.

“Fox decided to air them differently.  The Season One order is 13.  It’s always been 13 and they are shooting 13.  We just decided to combine episode 12 and 13 into a 2-hour finale.  In fact, the finale is gonna be epic.  It’s gonna be huge.”

Episode 11 will air January 13th, 2014, 9pm EST and the big finale (Episode 12/13 combo) will air Monday, January 20th beginning at 8pm EST on Fox!

THE WILMYWOOD DAILY – 12/11/2013 Max Steel Tests For Lead Roles, Times Like Dying, A Holiday Party and more!

Let the testing begin!  We’ve got a few choice actors and actresses fighting for two top notch roles in the upcoming flick, Max Steel, soon to be shot here in Wilmywood.  Of course, the top spot is Max himself.  And as for the female role, The Tracking Board reports it is currently listed as “undisclosed.”

MaxSteel Test

Anyhow, from left to right, here are the contenders ladies and gentleman!  (“Prisoners”, “Lost”),   (“Necessary Roughness”), and Noah Silver (“The Borgias”) are testing to play Max. For the undisclosed female role both  (“Parenthood”, “Ironside”) and  (“The Nine Lives of Chloe King”, “The Gates”) are in the running.  Who do you think will be heading to Wilmywood?

An Indiegogo campaign had begun for the short film Times Like Dying.  Lemme just say, they had me at Evan Vetter, who is in my personal top 5 favorite filmmakers in Wilmington.  Of course he’s is teaming up with some other very loved filmmakers as well: Shon Blotzer, Anthony Reynolds and Parrish Stikeleather.  You’re money will be very well spent with these guys involved.  So, spot them a 5 or so.  You will be glad you did! Times Like Dying is a 20-minute narrative short film set in the Post-Civil War South involving a man named Percy Dixon and his brothers who are stuck with no good options. They are facing the loss of their family farm and backed into a corner. They decide the only way to save their livelihood is to rob a bank. After the robbery, the Dixon clan become separated, but rendezvous at a small farm where they have a chance encounter with a lawman who has seen better days. Over the course of the night, the truth of their actions is discovered. Loyalties are tested. Hostages are taken. Surviving the night begins to outweigh saving the farm. tscc3 E_EtcThe Eclectic Etc. is having their Grand Opening/Holiday Party this Saturday night from 6:00pm-9:00pm.
