TV series ‘George & Tammy’ resumes in Wilmington, adds Michael Shannon

“George & Tammy,” a TV miniseries about late county stars George Jones and Tammy Wynette, has re-opened offices in Wilmington after going on hiatus this past spring.

The production, which had already announced that Oscar-nominated actress Jessica Chastain would play the role of Wynette, recently added fellow Oscar nominee Michael Shannon to play the role of Jones.

This according to an August Facebook post from Georgette Jones, who’s the only child of Jones, who died in 2013, and Wynette, who died in 1998. The series is based on Jones’ 2011 book, “The Three of Us: Growing Up with Tammy and George.”
