Season three of the hit HBO series “True Detective” recently dropped with rave reviews. When creator Nic Pizzolatto was scouting locations for the show, he knew Arkansas would be perfect.
“This is one my favorite places,” said the University of Arkansas graduate. “I think it’s a really special part of the country. I’m really looking forward to showing it off … in this series.”
There are more than 1,500 miles between Arkansas and Hollywood, but as Pizzolatto knew and others are beginning to notice, Arkansas is a natural home for film for many reasons – location, talent, industry support and more.
