BARTLETT, Texas (KXAN) - NBC's hit show "Revolution", a science fiction show about a worldwide blackout, is beginning production of its second season in Central Texas.
The first season was shot in North Carolina, but has now moved to Bartlett, Texas, population 1,623, exciting many in the town.
"I'm always glad when they make movies in Bartlett," said resident Jane Van Pragg. "It's a charming little town."
Set building started downtown and the city's mayor says shooting will begin sometime in July. For some stores, the boom in business has already started.
"Just them building what they're building, were already picking up on business," said Stacy Reyna over at the Duchess.
