Hick Town, the project that director George Hickenlooper was in the midst of making when he passed away suddenly on October 30, will carry on to its finish. Denver mayor (and George’s cousin) John Hickenlooper, producer Donald Zuckerman and Tricon Films & Television have announced that production on the fly-on-the-wall eight-part series will continue. Hick Town focuses on the career of Mayor Hickenlooper, who rose from a small businessmen to one of Time Magazine‘s top five mayors in the U.S. Two more episodes need to be filmed, including footage from the U.S. Senate election.
‘We owe it to him to finish the series as he was looking forward to covering tomorrow’s election day,’ said Zuckerman.
