The B-Town film boom continues, as a new webseries called “Manic Pixie Dream Wife” has begun shooting in Burien.

Series Creator M. Elizabeth Eller is a proud graduate of Highline High School.

“I have a very large family, and almost everyone for four generations lives in Burien, so B-Town will always be my forever home,” she told The B-Town Blog. “As such, when we started location scouting, I asked our production staff to focus on Burien so we could highlight local businesses and connect with people I know through my family.”

Filming will be done at The Mark Restaurant as well as A Place For Pets.

“We are so excited to be starting things off – well, let’s be real. *I* am so excited to be starting our month long shoot in my hometown!” Elizabeth added.
