MOUNT AIRY, N.C. — Crowds packed the Andy Griffith Playhouse Saturday in Mount Airy as a reality TV series was taped inside.

Mount Airy is one of eight cities across the country picked to be on AMC’s “Showville.” The producers of the series plan to highlight the drama behind small town talent shows.

Four local contestants competed for a $10,000 grand prize and the winner was picked by audience members.

The winner will be kept a secret until the show airs later this year.
