MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - The Upper Peninsula, Michigan-made series, Northbound, has special screenings of their first two seasons the first week in December.

It's all part of their series tour, to re-connect Yoopers with seasons one and two, and show a sneak peak of season three.

Northbound follows the early days of a lone father as he travels a post in a post cataclysmic world to protect his daughter as they come into contact with other survivalist groups challenging each other for control over the 'North Woods.'

The series was was filmed in the Upper Peninsula at locations in Houghton, Gwinn, Norway, Iron Mountain, and Marquette.

Northbound hopes the series shows others how the U.P. can be a platform for film.

"We've got the beauty, we've got the location, we've got the community support and we have the talent," said Fay Mannon-Rahoi, the coordinating producer.

"We want to build our community and we want to show them the exciting professionally made series is very possible here and that the access to it is open to the community to be a part of it," added Seth Anderson, the co-creator of the series.

Screenings will take place Thursday at the Ore Dock Brewing Company at 6 p.m. and the Calumet Theatre on Saturday at 2 p.m. eastern time.

All screenings are free, and will host filmmakers and cast.

Attendees will even be treated to costume and prop displays.
