Terriers Blog 03: Countdown Has Begun!

Below is part 3 of a series of blog posts that were written by Kelly Wheeler (writer and production assistant on ‘Terriers’) for the show. These were posted back in 2010 on the now defunct ‘Terriers’ site on FX.



We are almost ready to shoot! Prep has FLOWN by! We had a read-thru of our first episode and it went really well. Plus, it was great to have everyone back together again!

As the writers are busy breaking the rest of the episodes in LA, the crew is hustling to get everything ready for the first episode out of the gate.  This means finishing all the permanent sets, picking locations and setting cast.  No problem!

All of our ducks are in a row.

In one particular set, “Ext. OB Police Station” – we painted a mural to commemorate any fallen OB police officers. Now, since our police station is fictitious, obviously, so are the police officers.  As a result, two of the names posted are actually production office staff: Matt & Anika.

So as we get ready to go, thought you’d enjoy my interview with the man himself, Shawn Ryan.

Go Team Terriers!
