DUBUQUE, Iowa (KWWL) - From Northeast Iowa to our TV screen, a new drama series called, "Complete Bull," has decided to film its show in the Dubuque area.

Creator of the show, Colleen Bradford-Krantz, said she really wanted to highlight the agriculture Iowa offers and thought the Northeast region was the perfect place.

"I always pictured this story taking place in that area with the hills and the variety of different types of farms and so on," Krantz said, "it just fits the story really well and it's you know great for scenery."

"Complete Bull," is a recipient of The Iowa Department of Cultural AffairsGreenlight grant. This grant allows Iowa filmmakers to not only create more projects but to also tell stories of their home state.

The show is based on an animal scientist who must choose to either pursue her passion or join her father's cow insemination business. With the show centering around farmlands, Krantz says the features of Northeast Iowa farms really enhance the show's storyline.

"Beautiful videography and put your story in front of that and it just works really well," Krantz said, "but it does give you setting that you really can't create in a Hollywood studio."

Krantz told "KWWL" her team is almost done filming their pilot episode and their next step is to share it with streaming platforms. If picked up, the rest of the series can be filmed.

All of the money that's been spent on this project, goes back to the communities they filmed in.
