Española Assistant Fire Chief John Wickersham will have a role as a Fire Chief on the upcoming comedy television series “The Curse.” Filmed in Española, the show is set to star Emma Stone, Nathan Fielder and Benny Safdie.
According to Wickersham, he was joined by several other local firefighters to film scenes on Sept, 20 and 21 at the Española Fire Department.
“It was a good experience. I’m glad I did it. It was super fun and it was good for the department because ... it’s going to bring in close to $20,000 that we wouldn’t have without it,” Wickersham said.
The City of Española is paid for the rented station and equipment, and those funds are funneled back into the fire department, which is then capable of buying things it wouldn’t be able to buy with other monetary resources such as the fire funds.
