TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) – A major food TV show and production company are interested in filming in Tucson—something local leaders say could bring big bucks to the area. While exactly what show and production company is still under wraps, Tucson is making historical moves to bring them here.

Gone are the hay days of westerns filmed in Southern Arizona, along with many major film and TV production.

For the second time in a year, Samuel L. Jackson is playing a hitman in a movie. And for the second time in a year, you’ll wish he hadn’t.

When the Egyptian director Ayten Amin was 10 years old, a classmate’s sister killed herself. The news gripped the school. But, in a society where suicide is a sin, no one talked about it; instead, they mourned the girl as though she had died mysteriously, or in an accident. “When I was shooting my first film, it suddenly hit me,” Amin says over a video call from her home in Cairo. “How did my classmate feel back then? How did she grow up knowing what happened, but with no one talking about it?”

In her new film, Souad, Amin
