A spin-off of HGTV show “Good Bones” is set to begin production in Wilmington.
According to a film permit filed with the city of Wilmington, the show is set to shoot next week at a house at 807 Russell Alley, near Queen and Eighth streets.
“Good Bones” has been running on HGTV since 2016. In the show, typically rundown homes are remodeled, often with stunning results.
How the spin-off might differ from “Good Bones,” which is hosted by Karen E. Laine and her daughter, Mina Starsiak-Hawk, wasn’t immediately apparent. Representatives of High Noon Entertainment of Aurora, Colorado, which filed the permit, did not immediately return calls seeking comment.
According to the permit, “This is a home renovation show spin off. Homeowner has plans to renovate the property. Film crew is there to document the process.”

Shooting will take place both in and outside the Russell Alley house next week with a cast of two and a crew of six.
In Wilmington and around the country, film and TV production is largely at a standstill due to the Screen Actors Guild and the Writers Guild of America both being on strike against the studios represented by the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers. Unscripted or “reality show” programs aren’t generally covered by those agreements, however, and therefore can stay in production.
