WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - A new HBO series will start filming in the Wilmington area soon.

The show is currently untitled and listed in the "pre-production" phase on the Wilmington Regional Film Commission website. Johnny Griffin, who heads the film commission said HBO has provided little information about the series.

The show is set to start filming in May and is currently looking for crew.

If you are interested in applying for a job on the project, send your resume to and include your occupation in the subject line.

This isn't the first time HBO has looked to the Port City to film. Eastbound & Down and Little Britain USA also filmed on location here. Eastbound has been picked up for a 4th season and could return to the area, Griffin said.

HBO also filmed the movie, Mary and Martha, which stars Hilary Swank, in Wilmington.
