RICHMOND, Ky. (WTVQ) – The new TV pilot series “The Home” will be filming in Richmond from July 7 through July 10.

“This has been a long time coming,” Zancan said. “Working at a nursing home, I took all the stories and experiences, kept a log, and knew one day I wanted to turn this into a show. It’s happening and with a fantastic ensemble cast. It’s really exciting. Now I get to bring them to life in a real way that’s not been done before.”

The cast for “The Home” includes Alysia Joy Powell (“Judas and the Black Messiah,” “Orange is the New Black”), Jennifer Gareus (“The Bold and the Beautiful,” “The Young and the Restless”), Chad Morgan (“Robot Chicken”, “The Purge: Anarchy”), Storm Lever (“Broadway’s The Donna Summer Musical”), Joseph Ruud (former WWE superstar), Tamara Clatterbuck (“The Young and the Restless”), Paul Vato (“MADtv”), Josh Leeper, Sarah Kate Price, Jay Towns (“Bookstore: Snippets”), Julian Griffith (“Hardball,” “Chicago Fire”), Lexington’s own Jordan Bryant and several more.

“To have some of the names attached to this project is pretty incredible,” Zancan said. “This is a dream come true for me, and I am ready to get to work.”
