CBS Political Drama to Film in Richmond 

“Friday Night Lights” star Minka Kelly bringing sexy self to Oliver Hill Building.

The Executive Mansion and the second floor of the Oliver W. Hill Building on Capitol Square are all preparing for their close-ups this week when CBS begins filming its new pilot, “Body Politic.”

Though it may sound like a hotbed of bureaucratic drudgery, the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, on the second floor of the Hill Building, will see most of the action -- even the women's bathroom is anticipated as a potential set. Filming is scheduled for Friday afternoon.

If the taping draws a clot of chino-clad slackjaws, the show's star and quite the looker, Minka Kelly, may be the cause. The “Friday Night Lights” actress will lead the CW drama as Hope, who joins the staff of her estranged father, a senator just tapped to assume the role of Attorney General.
