Filming at High School Means Big Things for Community

A Livingston County school is just about ready for its close up. The Howell school board votes on a plan to use its shuttered high school as a movie set. Lights and cameras could mean major action for the district. Parker High School is the former home of the Howell Highlanders and it could be the future home of Hollywood.

Rick Terres, Asst. Superintendent for Business: "This contract may be the first of its kind with a public school system in the state of Michigan."

Parker only played the part of "high school" for one year before the cash-strapped district shut it down. Now a deal to reopen it as the backdrop for a movie could breathe new life and money into the building.
