Share Article

Wilmington, N.C., rolls out red carpet for TV drama stars, H20 Entertainment and Make-A-Wish Foundation of Eastern North Carolina.

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 at historic Thalian Hall in downtown Wilmington, which will double as a fundraiser for the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Eastern North Carolina. "Whittaker Bay" is 30-minute drama about four families - the Bannigans, Visteds, Coles and Hawkins - suburban elitists who seem to have the perfect life in their coastal North Carolina community.

Reveille International is one of the leading distributors of innovative and distinctive content from major producers across the globe. "Our international team is always searching for great partnerships and cutting-edge and provocative programming, and we believe we've found that with Actor Timothy Woodward Jr. and Whittaker Bay cast," said John Pollak, vice president of International Distribution and Creative Affairs for Reveille International. "We're confident 'Whittaker Bay's star-studded cast and powerful drama should raise a few eyebrows of our clients overseas."
