THE TWO HOUR FILMING OF THE PILOT WAS A SUCCESS

Well Folks,

The shooting of the two hour pilot for the TV show filmed at “Willie’s Place” at Carl’s Corner Texas is now over. It was months in the planning, but with the help of a great production company,”Mustang International” and their crew, plenty of lights, camera’s and of course the gang at “Willie’s Place Truck Stop”, I think it was a great shoot.   We had a great time even though we were in make up and wardrobe from 1:00 in the afternoon until midnight.  Willie’s Place was packed with standing room only and the dance floor was crowded with every song.  And what great dancers there were!  Mickey Gilley, Charley Pride, Ron Williams, Susie Dobbs and the up and coming new 5 girl group “Mustang Sally” all played their heart out and were as usual….great.

Elizabeth and I had great visits with each of the artists, some in the Whiskey River Saloon and some in the Blue Skies Cafe.  We’re not sure how Charley Pride took it when Thomas Saunders came riding his horse into the Whiskey River Saloon  just to meet Charley.  That was fun.

As soon as we have access to the pictures that were taken, we’ll post them.  There were so many, but we’ll make room for as many as we can.

It will be 30-45 days of post production before we have the DVD to send to our agent in Hollywood, Ca. to find it a home.  We will keep you posted of anything new as it happens.

Until then, Happy Trails and God Bless each of you!

TWO HOURS WITH WILLIE

The TV crew started setting up their lights and gear yesterday afternoon, preparing for Kilroy’s filmed visit with Willie at Willie’s Place, which will be the home for the Kilroy Show.  Early in the evening Kilroy and Willie started at the bar in the Whiskey River Saloon to start what ended up being 2 hours of Willie & Kilroy exchanging stories of past & present great Texas Honky Tonks and close mutual friends like Roger Miller, Faron Young, Webb Pierce, Bob Wills and others.  They spent time in the dance hall and then on to the walk of fame.

These clips will be inserted in small bites through out the show, which is still on schedule for the 25th.

The tickets are now available on Willie’s Place Truck stop web site ….  williesplacetheater.com   There is a limited number, so get yours early.

See you there.
