CAROLINA BEACH -
The cable channel Starz will begin filming the second season of the crime drama called "High Town" in Carolina Beach and Kure Beach over the next couple of weeks.
According to the description from Starz, High Town is, "Set in beautiful but bleak Cape Cod, Hightown follows one woman's journey to sobriety, overshadowed by an unfolding murder investigation."
The story focuses on an opioid epidemic in Cape Cod and the character Jackie Quiñones who struggles with sobriety as a National Marine Fisheries Services officer who discovers the body of a woman on the beach leading to a murder investigation.
One of the executive producers is Jerry Bruckheimer who previously worked on such films as Top Gun, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Flashdance and many others.
The Carolina Beach Town Council approved filming for the series at the Town Hall and Recreation Center during their October 13th, meeting. The proposed filming date is Friday, October 23rd from 7am to 2am. Filming is scheduled to wrap up the following day from 8am to 5:30pm.
The production company, "P-Town Productions, LLC" also applied for a permit to the Kure Beach Town Council to film on certain streets near the ocean front.
The Kure Beach Town Council questioned signs alerting people on the beach wishing to use beach access ramps in the area of filming that access would be limited. Also, the Council questioned how residential access to the area would be accommodated.
Representatives of the production company said security personnel will monitor the beach accesses and residents will be able to access their properties throughout filming of the series.
The Council unanimously approved of the permit request.
The permit calls for closing Atlantic Avenue between L and N Avenues from 6 am. through 5 p.m. on Wednesday, November 4, 2020.
Also:
- Close the boardwalk and beach accesses between L and N Avenues (Access #222, #244, and #322) from 6 a.m. through 5 pm. on Wednesday, November 4, 2020.
- Close the on-street parking area on the east side of North Fort Fisher Boulevard just south of the M Avenue intersection, the two on-street parking areas on the east side of North Forth Fisher Boulevard just north of the M Avenue intersection, and
the public parking on east N Avenue from 6 a.m. through 5 p.m. on Wednesday, November 4, 2020.
- Approve the transfer of the above items to the proposed rain dates of Friday, November 6, Monday, November 9, and Tuesday, November 10, if needed.
