Past Guest Roy Wood Jr. Gets B'ham Based Pilot Rolling
A few weeks back Roy Wood Jr. joined us out on the fire escape to talk all things Birmingham and the entertainment industry.
During the episode Roy told us about the possibility of shooting some projects back home in B’ham, and it is looking like that will be a reality according to the news this week.

“It’s my pleasure to partner with a network that understands an artist’s need to take the creative road less traveled to mine humor from complicated social prisms such as jail reform and gentrification,” Wood said. “Excited to tell these stories in a new place (Birmingham) and even more excited to go on this journey with an African-American woman director at the helm. Comedy Central has proven to me to be the right place to take on this challenge. Also, my mom has a long list of chores for me to do. So it’ll be kinda cool to shoot at home.”
Here at the FEP&B (Fire Escape Pod and Blog), we are so excited for these projects and beaming with pride for Roy and a city the three of us all call “home” in some way.
