Christy was actually filmed in and around Townsend, TN, a small town near Gatlinburg that calls itself the "Peaceful Side of the Smokies." Many of the buildings still exist, though most are on private land and can only be viewed from the road. See more »
Seeing the stark contrast of the poverty throughout the stunning Appalachian mountains isn't what Christy Huddleston was prepared for. She's a well-to-do sheltered outsider whose pride as a first time teacher occasionally sets her up for both comedic and serious life lessons. This series (based on the novel which in turn is based on the author's mother's real life experiences), is so beautifully crafted, you'll find yourself dreaming of your beautiful friends Fairlight Spencer, ruddy Scottish men, and drunk pigs for weeks! An absolute classic!
