“At a time when politics can be polarizing, ‘A View from the Mountains’ brings North Carolinians closer to understanding the different perspectives of the whole state,” Boyum told The McDowell News. “The story involving Mayor Little is a great example where we can showcase his passion, knowledge and commitment to our great state. His passion was so evident and it was our honor to share it with the North Carolinians.
Little, who is the main focus of the show, said he was overwhelmed by the Emmy nomination.
