TV show filmed in Butte premieres Wednesday night


BUTTE, Mont. - A new television pilot filmed in Butte, called "Buttetification," premieres Wednesday night.

It is an HGTV show about old home renovations.

With all of the old mansions in Butte it made for a perfect filming location.

Stephanie Sorini, of the Butte Chamber of Commerce, says Butte's film industry is booming.

"It's been a very great economic development and drive to our community, because they've been able to show Butte in a very good, positive way," she said.

She says the historical buildings bring a lot of natural light and resources that give Butte a positive self-image.

There will be a viewing party of the show sponsored by the Chamber Wednesday at 7 p.m. in the Copper King Hotel at 219 West Granite Street.

It will also air on HGTV Wednesday at 9 p.m.
