GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - The equipment is in place to shoot scenes for an upcoming ABC drama. So are orange and white cones.
Producers of "The Astronaut Wives Club" have chosen downtown Gulfport as the backdrop for their new TV series. They've selected the area in front of the Courtyard Marriott, the Depot location, and Triplett Day Drug Store as locations where camera crews will work today. When the cameras roll, the city must temporarily close roads in those areas. So, expect Highway 90 just east of downtown Gulfport to be reduced to one lane this morning. In the afternoon, traffic flow might be interrupted near Highway 49 and 13th Street.
When WLOX get details about any merging traffic or road closings, we'll post that information on WLOX.com.
"The Astronaut Wives Club" is expected to debut in 2015.
