Southern Comfort

From one of our spies, who woke up to find her East Memphis neighborhood covered up by the cast and crew of Southern Comfort, an in-progress TV pilot which has been called a Southern Sopranos: “Several large panel trucks were parked across the street. The one directly in front of my house said, ‘Paskal Lighting – Hollywood.’ A couple of hours later, four tractor trailers, golf carts, cherry pickers, vans, security cars, and a police detail on three motorcycles arrived. Television cable was run for what seemed like miles. Little campers parked on the street were each marked with a character’s name — ‘Demetria,’ ‘Tripp,’ etc.

“The actors’ waste cans were out on the sidewalk. One was overflowing with Winston cigarette wrappers and Diet Coke cans. I spotted Eric Roberts in a suit and tie standing with an actor who appeared to be his double. Madeleine Stow, in jeans and a baseball cap, was taller than I expected. Lots of Starbucks and smoking. The actors milled about in the street or on the driveway. One of the teen actors was having a blast driving a golf cart. I wondered if acting was boring….”

If the action picks up, we’ll let you know.
