VIDEO: Watch Actress Claire Danes' Promotional Video for Richmond

Posted By on Mon, Nov 12, 2018 at 11:55 PM

Part of the partnership deal for filming season seven of the Showtime series "Homeland" in Richmond required the studio behind the Emmy-winning show (Fox21) to create a promotional video for the city.

So here you go. I feel like actress Claire Danes really puts a little extra lovin' into this, she clearly was feeling Richmond during her six months living here. Oh, and she was feeling that Proper Pie, boy. No doubt. She describes our restaurant scene as "unbelievably great."

But the key highlight comes a little later. Just imagine this bumper sticker on cars everywhere: "Richmond, Va: "Don't Even Get Us Started on the Yarn Stores!"

Danes has reportedly said that Season 8 of "Homeland" will be her last. She made no mention of ever giving up Proper Pie, though.
