Fairfield, Texas is being made famous by a small production company who filmed several historic spots in the area for an upcoming international TV show. Jodie Webb and Brian Doty hit the town last week, filming country life at F.E. Hill Ranch and the Freestone County Historical Museum.

The show, This Is Country, airs internationally in Great Britain, France, and Spain – just to name a few – and will air locally on the Wrangler Network.

“In other countries, the Western way of life is huge,” said host Brian Doty.

F.E. Hill Ranch owner John Hill has been friends with Doty for years and invited him to film on his property. Doty and Hill spent the day working cows as the second segment of the four-part series. “The first segment shows just a small town – in this case, Fairfield,” Doty explained. “The second shows a day in the life – which we showed on horseback at the Hill Ranch.”

The third segment displays country people relaxing (which might include hunting or fishing, such is the case with Doty). The fourth segment, Doty says, is his favorite because it exhibits the charity Doty is part of called Western Wishes.
