Miniseries to make Peekskill a star
Peekskill residents are being exposed to a bit of Hollywood as a miniseries starring Oscar-winning actress Kate Winslet is shooting in the town.
The five-part miniseries is expected to hit television screens next year on HBO. The creators of "Mildred Pierce" say Peekskill bears a strong resemblance to Hollywood in the 1930s and was an ideal setting for the show. It focuses on a middle-class housewife's struggle to support her family during the Great Depression.
Filming for the upcoming series is scheduled to begin today.
