Writers’ Strike Throws Focus on “whittaker Bay”
With scores of scripted primetime TV series shut down by the Hollywood writers’ strike, dramas often overlooked by programmers and critics – such as H20 Entertainment’s “Whittaker Bay” – are receiving long overdue attention.
The drama, filmed on location in Wilmington, N.C., was spotlighted – along with one of its stars, Timothy Woodward Jr. – in the cover story of The Hollywood Reporter November special issue, Made in America.
Wilmington rolls out the red carpet Dec. 9 for the world premiere of “Whittaker Bay,” set to air beginning Jan. 5, 2008, on Superstation WGN. The show is also being marketed in 95 countries.
The cast features twin sisters Kelly and Sabrina Aldridge from MTV’s reality series, “8th & Ocean,” and the feature film “Deck the Halls”. Both will be on hand for the Dec. 9 premiere
