What we know about “Love in Fairhope”
The mini-series will document the lives of five women navigating life and love on the Eastern Shore. Filming initially took place last year from July to November.
The old library on Summit Street will be the base of operations, says The Fairhope Times.
According to a producer in a recent interview, the show is set to premiere this September.
Mayor Sullivan’s response to filming in Fairhope
So how does filming affect the town?
In an interview with WKRG, Fairhope Mayor Sherry Sullivan said:
“Anytime you bring filming to your community I think it’s great. This is our third production this year. We’ve had two earlier this year. It’s good for the economy. Obviously when they come here they rent housing, they have caterers, they have food they come to restaurants.”
Mayor Sullivan also revealed more information about what to expect from the show:
“It’s kind of love through the years. Maybe young love and there’s a widowed person who finds love again. It kind of follows you through the stages of life and finding love at every stage.”
