Lionsgate has announced a TV special on The Hunger Games will air on October 29th on Pop TV. The special is titled “Jet to the Set: The Hunger Games” and it will take us behind the scenes on the franchise’s locations in Atlanta, as well as give us a peek into how the special effects and make-up of these four movies were made. They will also present interviews with the cast (see photos below), and, most importantly, the special will include a brand new clip from the movie.
Hosted by TV personality Carly Steel (CBS’ “Entertainment Tonight”) and Hollywood insider and style guru Laurie Feltheimer (“Hot in Hollywood”), JET TO THE SET: THE HUNGER GAMES is a mix of travel, adventure and pop culture. Filmed in Atlanta, the primary location of The Hunger Games films, the show will feature behind-the-scenes access to set locations, including The Victor’s Training Center, President Snow’s Mansion and the 75th Hunger Games Cornucopia. Viewers will witness Laurie’s incredible transformation to Effie Trinket with make-up and special effects, and watch Carly perfect her archery skills.
The one hour special will give viewers the first sneak-peek clip from the highly anticipated release of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, as well as exclusive interviews with lead cast members Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth.
In addition to the film set’s secrets, Laurie and Carly will guide viewers through the jewel of the South, providing the ultimate insider look at what’s hot and what’s not in Atlanta. Fans will learn how to experience the city just like the stars ofThe Hunger Games with a glimpse at the hippest restaurants and local hot spots.
Because no real behind-the-scenes tour is complete without exclusive cameos, JET TO THE SET: THE HUNGER GAMES will also feature special appearances by Patina Miller (Commander Paylor) and more who give us the authentic lowdown on Atlanta.
The special will air on October 29th at 9:00 pm ET/PT, on Pop TV. We saw pictures from the cast interviews a couple months ago (thanks to Panem Propaganda for pointing these out), which you can see below. Are you looking forward to this special?
