Milling About visits Senoia, Georgia, also known as the city of The Walking Dead. This sweet little town just outside of Peachtree City, Atlanta with it's Norman Rockwell Main Street, has become the backlot for the most successful television show on AMC. Walking around you see where the Governor lived, Hershel's farm, the railroad tracks and lots of familiar woods where zombies roam. Don't expect to go there and try to hop the fence that was built around the surrounding woods or find out anything about season five currently shooting there as the show is shrouded in secrecy. Scott Tigchelaar, president of Raleigh Studios, which houses the production, and John Hartnett, former president of Riverwood Studios now with Southern Hollywood Film Tour join host Robin Milling with some fun nuggets about the show.
John tells Robin why the homeowner of Hershel's farm was a tough sell and how tourists love to ring the bell of the Fried Green Tomatoes house even though someone lives there! Scott reveals why Senoia is their permanent production home and how the cast, especially Norman Reedus (Daryl), like to surprise Walker Stalkers visiting The Woodbury Shoppe, the official Walking Dead store. There's a great photo on their Facebook page with Norman and manager Carrie happily straddled behind him on the motorcycle which is on display in the store's basement. Here is where you'll find all your Walking Dead swag. Scott promises an upcoming installation of Penny for Penny's Cage by zombie make-up artist Greg Nicotero. They have specialty items like leather eater keychains with ears made of leather; a throwback to Daryl's trophy of zombie ears he wore on a lanyard around his neck.
