Emmy award-winning series producer, and Southeastern Ohio native, Evan Shaw, began research last year on the project. In addition to historical events, the documentary will also highlight what makes Jackson special today, including segments focused on the Apple Festival, the Jackson Eisteddfod, etc. In the early parts of the documentary, Shaw stated the story of Jackson County as a whole will be told.
