Hollywood is indeed coming to town.
Producers, actors and even Gov. Kathleen Sebelius will cascade on North Lawrence next weekend to shoot artwork for a pivotal scene for the upcoming television drama "Jericho," CBS announced today.
For the event, Sebelius will proclaim that North Lawrence will officially change its name for a day to Jericho - the fictional Kansas town in the post-apocolyptic drama - and will unveil the crop art local artist Stan Herd carved for the event.
One of the show's stars, Skeet Ulrich, will also attend the event Sept. 9.
After the unveiling, CBS officials will hold a sneak-preview of the show's pilot episode at the Lawrence Visitor Center, 4-2 N. Second st. Musician Kelly Hunt will perform afterwards.
The new show is set in a Kansas town after a nuclear disaster in neighboring Colorado.
