So awesome. I'd love to be an extra but so far they need people on work days...and you need to be able to ride a horse, heh. Fingers crossed that they need extras on a weekend.

I'm interested in seeing it mostly because it has the same producer as Lost. It starts showing Sept 27.

If the site that I get my business news briefings across the state doesnt inform when show starts, maybe you can revamp this thread then so I can set the DVR.

Wilminton needs a good TV series filmed there again. To bad 'One Tree Hill' has run it course but lol they cant stay in high school forever.
I got to be a detective 'extra' for Matlock.

I also think if it not done already have tours base on TV and film locations.
I went to Charleston for first time last month and that city was a big tourist trap. I dont know how many tour trolleys I saw but that city knows where it income is base on the price of goods and food.

Default Did 'Revolution' have any noticeable economic impact?

Does anyone know or could feel an economic impact from the TV series Revolution?
I really enjoyed this series and it was one of JJ Abrams better ones.

I know some filming was done in Myrtle Beach area as it has more vast fields but I think some of wooded area look like Carolina Beach Park with the long leaf pines.
I also notice in one scene was Morris Island Light house by Folley Beach.

It been awhile since Wilmington hosted a Tv series like 'One Tree Hill' and 'Matlock'.

Did anyone have any celebrity sightings or cross block off area for filming?
What about the hospitality industry, did it have impact?
