Northwest Arkansas is in the spotlight Sunday as the background for season three of True Detective.
Locals packed the Artist’s Laboratory Theater in Fayetteville for their own watch party.
We spoke to locals beforehand that said they are watching the show for the first time, half of the room was filled with extras who got in on the action and saw filming first hand in their own backyards.
One local said through all of his years living in Northwest Arkansas he’s never experienced anything like this and is proud they featured NWA in the show.
“Its exciting we had fun filming it. We put in that day at Walmart and saw them actually filming the thing and going through the process so that was probably the most exciting thing for me cause ive never been on a set before,” said Northwest Arkansas local.
True Detective season three episode one and two are available now on HBO.
