A portion of the Cotton Block in downtown Rome has been transformed into a scene from the 1800s this week for filming of an episode in a new FX series entitled “Kindred”.
Monica Sheppard, downtown property owner, says that the series is centered around a woman who discovers that she has the ability to travel through time.
Sheppard states that its ‘really cool’ to see the transformation of her space into the likeness of a bygone era.
Several other businesses have undergone a similar transformation, indicates Sheppard. Sand now covers a portion of the Cotton Block.
‘Kindred’, the FX series, is based on a 1979 novel of the same name that was written by Octavia E. Butler.
