Virginia lands Civil War era TV series

Virginia Film OfficeBy Lynn R. Mitchell

Virginia is for movie lovers. Once again, the Commonwealth has been chosen for an historical drama television series.

The pilot for “Point of Honor” will be filmed in central Virginia. Set during the Civil War, it will relay the story of a Virginia family that has been torn apart by the war. Locations were not announced but filming will begin in September for ABC and Amazon Studios.

Some pretty accomplished names will be a part of the project. From the Richmond Times-Dispatch (see Pilot for historical TV series to be filmed in Richmond area):

The project will be directed by Randall Wallace, a graduate from E.C. Glass High School in Lynchburg. Wallace previously helmed the 2010 picture “Secretariat” about Virginia’s legendary Triple-Crown winning Thoroughbred. He also wrote the screenplay for the Mel Gibson blockbuster “Braveheart” and most recently penned and directed “Heaven is for Real,” the story about a 4-year-old who said he experienced heaven during emergency surgery.

“Point of Honor is co-written and produced by Carlton Cuse, executive producer for the Emmy-winning hit series “Lost.”

Virginia is for history lovers.
