WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Netflix plans to film two projects in “Hollywood East.”

Deadline reports the show is from “13 Reasons Why” executive producer/showrunner Brian Yorkey.

EUE/Screen Gems Studios appeared to confirm the news on Twitter today.

This is the second Netflix show that plans to film in Wilmington this year.

Florida Man, starring Edgar Ramirez (”American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace”, “The Undoing”), is listed as in pre-production on the Wilmington Regional Film Commission website.
