Mike Ri­ley said the show’s pro­duc­ers asked for an iso­lated, open area, and he thought of the area just out­side Mans­field, a place he has worked be­fore. He said he most re­cently worked with the Car­toon Net­work show “Ben 10,” which filmed in Newton County and Cony­ers.

“There’s been a lot of film­ing in the com­mu­nity, Cov­ing­ton and Newton County. They are fa­mil­iar with the process, and they know what to ex­pect when a film com­pany comes in,” Ri­ley told The News. “They’re much more re­cep­tive and re­al­ize the eco­nomic im­pact that film­ing brings.”

Pub­li­cist Karen Pidgurski said she isn’t sure at this point if more film­ing will take place in Newton County.

Ac­cord­ing to AMC’s web­site, the TV se­ries adap­tion was writ­ten, pro­duced and di­rected by three-time Academy Award-nom­i­nee Frank Darabont (“The Shaw­shank Re­demp­tion,” “The Green Mile”) and ex­ecu- tive pro­duced by Gale Anne Hurd (“The Ter­mi­na­tor,” “Aliens,” “Ar­maged­don,” “The In­cred­i­ble Hulk”).
