Charleston is beginning to look a lot like Hollywood, with multiple film and television productions including the latest chapter in the “Halloween” franchise and the Stephen King adaptation “Mr. Mercedes” going before cameras.

Now, a producer of the hit NBC show “This Is Us” is about to add one more to the mix.

The South Carolina Film Commission has announced filming dates for “Salvage,” a new ABC Studios pilot that “follows ex-cop Jimmy Hill, who just wants to be left alone after moving back home to rural Florida. But when a local murder is linked to the sunken treasure of a lost Spanish galleon, he’s drawn into the investigation by an idealistic deputy and pitted against the powerful town patriarch, outside criminal agents, and his own father,” Variety reports.

Don Todd, an executive producer and writer on “This Is Us,” “Ugly Betty” and “Caroline in the City” among many others, according to his IMDb profile, will write and produce “Salvage,” says Variety.

No casting information could be found for the show, but it is expected to film from Tuesday, March 13 to Thursday, March 29 in Charleston, according to a crew call on the South Carolina Film Commission’s Facebook page.
