Hotel as TV Set

The legal show Petrocelli filmed at my house when I was just a wisp of a girl. My house at the time was a Braniff Hotel, so it wasn't all that intrusive, but it was darn glamorous. One of my first memories was actress Susan Howard getting dolled up in a make-up chair steps from our suite. She had curlers in her hair. I was in love.

I remain fascinated by hotels that allow filming. It's such a a major undertaking, what with the guests and all. (The guests usually love it.)

Motel Fairwil in Wilfair serves as the setting for a fake TV crime drama. The show in the book is not the show from my childhood, but the thrill of cables everywhere and big lights outside my bedroom is something I can't shake.
