| Wilmington charter school gets more time to boost enrollment|
RALEIGH, NC (WWAY) -- Douglass Academy's doors will remain open for now, despite not having enough students.
The Office of Charter Schools today voted to suggest to waive this year's enrollment numbers. The State Board of Education will make the final decision.
Thirty-three students attend Douglass Academy in Wilmington. State statute requires at least 65.
"It sounds like they've stubbed their toe at every turn," Office of Charter Schools member Steven Walker said during a hearing today in Raleigh.
Douglass Academy Headmaster Barbra Jones says issues with finding a suitable facility and with marketing are to blame for the low numbers. She said the school also had problems with 6,000 advertisements mailed to homes of potential students, which affected its numbers.
"I've been told from several people in the community that they have a wait and see attitude," said Jones.
Jones says there are 77 students enrolled for the 2014-2015 school year.
"We've got all the pieces in place," Douglass board chair John Ferrante said. "It's happening."
The Office of Charter Schools will reexamine the number of students October.
Jones told the board Douglass Academy had issues with identifying a building for the school. She says this caused doubt in the target demographic the school aims to serve, which are the different public housing communities around the city.

| Football players take snap at small screen role|
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Hollywood East got down and dirty today at Legion Stadium as football players became aspiring actors and went long to snag a spot on a TV pilot shooting in Wilmington.
Two-a-days and a real coach are what these football players can expect if cast for the CBS pilot that did have the working title "The Red Zone," but is now known as "Untitled Nikki Tuscano Project."
Trae Haskins says this is his first time auditioning for any show, so he made sure to put his best cleat forward.
"I've never done any extra work, so this is going to be my first time to even do anything like that," Haskins said. "Plus, I haven't done anything football related in about eight months, so I was excited about that, too. Just the fact that I put my cleats on kind of got me excited as well."
Haskins says this is a great opportunity and just hopes he does not get cut from the team.
There are about 30 to 40 spots available on the TV team.

| Exec: Screen Gems committed to Wilmington despite Miami expansion|
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Screen Gems is expanding down south.
EUE/Screen Gems Studios already has facilities in New York, Atlanta and, of course, Wilmington. And in about 15 months, it will have yet another studio in Miami.
"I think it is wonderful," said Chris Miller, a set costumer working on the TV show "Under the Dome" in Wilmington.
Miller says he has a lot of friends in Florida, and from what he hears, business is slow, so he is hoping Screen Gems' new studio will fix that and help Wilmywood along the way.
"Hopefully it will bring more business here, have the two studios together," Miller said. "Hopefully."
While he and many others we spoke with off camera are excited for the expansion, some worry it could pull business from the Port City.
"As long as it wouldn't take work away from the people in Wilmington, I would be all for it," actor John Bonner said.
Bonner has worked as an extra in "Eastbound & Down," "Sleepy Hollow" and "Under the Dome" to name a few. He says it is important to keep the money coming to Wilmington and in the pockets of those who need it most.
"You've got a lot of retired people up north come down here and do the extra work, and they come in and they pick up a lot of, you know, kind of subsidize their salary," Bonner said.
In a statement EUE/Screen Gems Studio COO and co-owner Chris Cooney said the Wilmington studio remains the largest studio complex outside of California. He says the company is in full support of and actively working toward extending film incentives in North Carolina to keep Wilmywood in full force.
Screen Gems also had plans to remake Charlotte's Eastland Mall site into a movie studio. For now those plans are on the back-burner due to the city's objections.

| Two planned developments could signal Porters Neck boom|
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- The New Hanover County Commission is meeting tonight to vote on a proposed mixed-use development in Porters Neck.
Regardless of the fate of that development an even bigger project is being planned just up the road in Pender County.
Trask Land Co. plans to develop about 1,300 acres off of US 17 and Scott's Hill Loop Rd. into a mixed-use community called Blake Farm.
Phase one of the project would include 300 apartments and 200 single-family homes before expanding into 2,200 lots.
"It's just starting to really thrive with everything coming in from Porters Neck all the way up to Camp Lejeune and Jacksonville," Trask Land Co. Spokeswoman Carolina Merrill said. "It's a beautiful location, because it's secluded enough to where you are close to wilmington, but you're still far enough out to where you have that closure and you have that peace and serenity that it provides."
Development in the area could start as early as late 2014.
