The production company hopes to bring justice to these girls and their families by recreating the manhunt and trial that followed and revealing the true killer. On Sounds Good, Kate Lochte speaks with Producer/Screenwriter John Russell Penn and Associate Producer Connie Maynord about the film, what they're looking for in auditions and why they chose to film in Kentucky.

More than 5,500 people attended a concert Saturday night for the one of country music’s most popular acts, The Zac Brown Band. While the attendance didn’t set records the production setup at the CFSB center did. The center’s Wesley Hughes says the tour travels with 11 semi-trucks, nine of which were full of production gear.

“There were over 60 rigging points-which is crazy for the building,” said Hughes.  Typically, Hughes said 30 to 40 points are used for an average show.
