TV crews turn Richland County hay field into Hollywood set

Posted:

RICHLAND COUNTY (WKOW) -- About a mile away from the Anders home in Richland County, you pass the first security check point.  The second two approach quickly. 

Security patrol is intense, since they're trying to keep the overexcited fans away from the make-shift set for the ABC show "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition."  

On a field opposite the home, TV crews turned a large hay field into their production lot.  

There are dozens of semis and trailers, huge tents, and barricades.  

Volunteers work construction all day, but get pampered during their breaks.  

"It's amazing how many people there are waiting for a job to do," said one volunteer who spent the afternoon hauling ice for the catering trucks. 

Food is another story. 

Gourmet is the word of the day, where grilled chicken and rice pilaf piled on people's plates Wednesday afternoon. 

All of it provided free, of course.
