Read our full Q&A with Mercy Street Executive Producer Lisa Wolfinger in the December issue of Richmond magazine (on newsstands now!), who describes the upcoming show as "Gone with the Wind meets M*A*S*H."
In this video, we talk with Wolfinger about the show's concept, casting and why Richmond was chosen as a prime filming location. We also take sneak peeks at the behind-the-scenes work of special effects artists, costumers and the show's propmaster. (Video shot and produced by Maureen McNabb).
For even more Mercy Street, read about our experience of visiting the set in the final weeks of filming this summer here, and view our slideshow. We took a behind-the-scenes tour of the set, met with the head of the show’s costume design team, and learned how the crew transformed Richmond, Virginia 2015 into Richmond, Virginia 1862 every day.
