CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - A Los Angeles producer is proposing to shoot a new television series chronicling the lives of young ski bums pursuing their recreational lifestyle in the resort setting of Jackson Hole.
Robert Hickey of Better Wings Entertainment describes the show, called "Epic," as a dramatic comedy with actors and scripted scenes that also incorporates elements of documentary.
The project has received initial approval for Wyoming's film incentive program; final approval from the Wyoming Tourism Board is pending. Hickey hopes to shoot "Epic" in Jackson Hole this ski season, but he says the project is contingent on finding a distribution deal for the series.
Hickey is executive producer of "10 Items or Less," a comedy
series on cable network channel TBS that finished its third season
