SOUTHPORT, NC (WECT) - Southport's Board of Alderman approved the filming of the new CBS series Under the Dome at Southport City Hall Thursday night.

The production has indicated they want to film inside and outside of the building. Location managers have also visited the building.

The series will paint the building, but will have to return it to the original color.

The production wants to shoot inside the room where the board meets. They also want to remove the pews from the room and use chairs instead.

Aldermen joked they may want to keep the chairs that the production brings in and get rid of the uncomfortable pews.

Filming will take place at city hall in about two weeks.
