Filming of Kim Gatlin‘s GCB is off and running. Kim took her mom, Kay Hammond, to visit the set Thursday and meet some VIPs like Marisol Nichols (Heather in the book) and Charles Pugliese. He’s the one that put the bug in executive producer Darren “Sex and the City” Star‘s ear about the potential of Kim’s book as a show.
Highlight of the tour was the bigger-than-life portrait of Gigi, mother of main character Amanda. Touring with Kay, Kim, and Charles were Kay’s bud Carmaleta Whiteley and Kim’s British-accented, Los Angeles pal Rosi Hygate, former assistant to the late Patrick Swayze. BTW, Rosi was highly influential in Kim’s making the right Hollywood connections.
Don’t get your hopes up that this Dallas shooting is going to continue if the pilot sells. Sorry, but it will be primarily shot in LA.
