BROADWAY — ABC Television will film the opening segment to an episode of “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” at the North Carolina Veterans Memorial in Broadway Saturday and has asked that veterans and spectators be on hand for the shoot.
Show host Ty Pennington announced today that an eastern North Carolina man will be the recipient of a home makeover. Jeff Cooper of Jamesville is a disabled veteran of the first Gulf War. The Cooper family, who live in a dilapidated double wide trailer, was chosen as part of the series’ program called Heroes Helping Heroes.
Although the makeover itself will be in Jamesville, Broadway Town Manager Bob Stevens said he was contacted Thursday by a producer with ABC Television who said the show’s producers wanted to film the introduction to the episode at the North Carolina Veterans Memorial in Broadway.
Set-up for the shoot will begin around 1 p.m. Saturday with shooting beginning an hour later. Stevens said producers are especially looking for veterans to participate in a parade in the area and that spectators are welcome as well.
The North Carolina Veterans Memorial is located at 210 S. Main St. in Broadway.
