10 Things You Didn’t Know About Dukes Of Hazzard
8. Jerry Rushing
Jerry Rushing – whose own experiences as a bootlegger were used in the show – had a guest role in the episode “Repo Man,” which he thought was going to become a recurring part to compensate him for giving them material. This led to a legal dispute with Warner Bros. over the rights to characters and concepts that were on The Dukes of Hazzard.
7. Filming Locations
The first five episodes were filmed in Covington and Conyers, Georgia, and surrounding areas, with some location work being done in Atlanta. After the fifth episode, Warner Bros. decided to move production to their lot in Burbank, California, to simplify production and a larger workshop to service the large number of cars needed for the series.
