The pilot episode of an ABC Studios television production is set to begin filming in Charleston next month. Salvage, a one-hour drama, will be written and executive produced by Don Todd, who has held the same roles on the hit NBC series This Is Us.
According to Deadline, the show “follows ex-cop Jimmy Hill, who just wants to be left alone after moving back home to rural Florida. But when a local murder is linked to the sunken treasure of a lost Spanish galleon, he’s drawn into the investigation by an idealistic deputy and pitted against the powerful town patriarch, outside criminal agents, and his own father.”
The South Carolina Film Commission shared some production details on Facebook. The organization said the crew and principal cast are currently being put together for the tentative shoot dates of March 13th to March 29th. Roles for extras will be announced at a later time.
In addition to his work on This Is Us, Todd co-created the ABC series Samantha Who? His other credits include Hart of Dixie, Ugly Betty, and Caroline in the City. He is also the showrunner on the upcoming ABC series For the People.
Salvage is the latest production to film in the Holy City, which has become a popular spot for both TV and cinema projects. Other productions that have called the Charleston area home include Top Chef, Vice Principals, Mr. Mercedes, Halloween, Southern Charm, Naked, Leavey, The Inspectors, The Sinner, Reckless, and South of Hell.
