Last year I was paid to write an entry regarding film and television production in Arkansas for the website ONLY IN ARKANSAS.
The entire production was filmed in Northwest Arkansas and stars Academy Award winning actor Mahershala Ali and British actress Carmen Ejogo.
I was lucky enough to work as an extra in a press conference scene that appears in the second episode. Because of my love of television and movies, it was exciting to just be in the same room as the professions - the talented cast, the hard working crew and the outstanding costume, hair and makeup specialists.
Here's a link to my story:
