Premiere of TV pilot filmed in city planned

The world premiere of a TV pilot filmed in Seymour in the fall of 2021 will be held from 7 to 10 p.m. Aug. 11 at Harmony Park at The Seymour Brewing Co. in the city.

The showing of “In Justice, IN” also is serving as a fundraiser for Fraternal Order of Police Donald M. Winn Lodge 108’s annual Cops and Kids program. FOP members help local children in need shop for Christmas gifts, including toys and clothes.

“Our goal is to raise $1,500 for the program, so all of our tickets sales will be going toward reaching that goal,” said Brian Snow, who operates Roamin’ Soldier Productions LLC. That production company is based in southern Indiana.

“We had an amazing time filming in Seymour and Jackson County and are pulling out all the stops for our red carpet event,” he said of the film that was shot in the Laurel Street and Mutton Creek areas. A crash scene was filmed on rural roads in the Waymansville area.

An 18-minute cut of the pilot episode is currently making the rounds of the film festival circuit at this time, Snow said.

“We are looking forward to the number of screenings we have already been officially selected for,” he said.

This includes one at the historic Victory Theatre in Evansville and the Scarab International Film Festival in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.

“In Justice, IN” also features local talent. Seymour natives Aaron Boknecht and Robin Redicker are part of the cast, and Jackson County Sheriff’s Department officers Aaron Wilkins and Dustin Steward also are featured in the film.

The cast also includes Snow, his wife, Lisa Marie Snow, and Isaac Ahmady.

“In this particular episode, a fella feels like his mom has been murdered,” Snow said. “There’s no evidence of it, but something ain’t right, and so he’s asked law enforcement to help, but they’re like, ‘We can’t do nothing for you.’”

The tagline for the episode says, “Highlighting issues facing the justice system, two friends are forced to take matters into their own hands if justice is to be served after the untimely death of one of the men’s mothers.”

Snow said the justice system is a focus for the project. Justice is a fictional town that is used as a setting for the show.

“This particular episode highlights some of the issues that law enforcement faces when the justice system just keeps letting people out and how they don’t have enough funding to do the help that they want to do,” he said. “Sometimes, it makes people have to do some bad stuff because they don’t feel like they’re being supported.”

During filming, Snow said he planned to pitch the pilot to CMT and other TV networks in New York, Los Angels, Atlanta and Nashville.

Tickets for the world premiere event are available online at or at Harmony Park, 755 W. Second St., Seymour.
