Disney to Film 'Shadows' Down South

The Walt Disney Co. has filed paperwork in Louisiana to shoot the first season of Shadows in the state.

According to, Walt Disney Co. is working on a new TV series in Louisiana. But, the details surrounding the new project are a mystery. Reports point out that the show's total budget is $42 million, of which $11.2 million will be spent in Louisiana over the course of 86 days of local production. The show is currently in pre-production, with filming set to begin in mid-February. Rumors on the internet suggest that it may have something to do with a Star Wars TV series called "Shadows of the Empire". However, that is just a rumor at this point. New Orleans' film industry has been revitalized as of late. OWN's hit TV series Queen Sugar is expected to start filming this March, Seth Rogen's Preacher is now hiring crew in New Orleans, and SyFy is filming a TV pilot called 'The Haunted' in early 2017.
