TV show films in Jefferson
BY JEREMIAH DILLS
A little bit of Hollywood came to downtown Jefferson this week when a film crew arrived in town to film a segment for a television series.
An episode of “Atlanta Homicide,” a crime television series based in Atlanta, was filmed at a Jefferson home and business this week. A few weeks ago, another episode was filmed at a Jefferson restaurant.
This week, some of the cast and crew were at a home in Jefferson, as well as Dot’s Florist Shop filming. The earlier scene was taped at Mike’s Grill on a Friday night.
A member of the crew lives near Jefferson and recommended the sites as locations to be used. Most of the episodes features a crime being solved and the cast going to a local restaurant to discuss the outcome.
The show is filming its second season after a successful run in the test market of Jacksonville, Fla.
“The story line is kind of like the show ‘The Wire,’ with ‘CSI’ sprinkled on top, and shot in the same style as ‘Shield,’” said Kal Couthen, who plays a detective on the show.
The second season will be broadcast in June on the “colours tv” channel on Dish Network.
