Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – Production has started in a series of locations around Marquette County for the independent short film, “Waiting for Wiig”.

Wiig, who has appeared in multiple film projects and has also worked extensively behind the camera, explained the history of the film and how it came to be.

He also shared the story about how he served as the inspiration for the story about three guys waiting on a friend, and ultimately took on the mantle of the film’s director.
