If you thought Tennessee somehow annexed North Carolina on Tuesday, you weren’t alone.

For many hours, the flag of our neighbors from the west flew above the state capitol as a movie prop, according to Governor Cooper’s office.

According to WRAL reporter Travis Fain, ‘The Evolution of Nate Gibson’ was being shot at North Carolina’s state house on Tuesday. The Hollywood production for Netflix is based on a true story of a family navigating a tragic event that leaves their teen son permanently disabled.

The film is directed by Nick Hamm with Academy Award-winning actress Marcia Gay Harden and Diane Ladd starring in the project that started last month and expected to wrap in Los Angeles later this year. The crew transitioned from shooting the film in Charlotte last week to Raleigh this week, according to a source with knowledge of the project.

No word on when the film is expected to be released.
