Representatives of 371 Productions announced plans for a reality show about the Sip ‘n Dip Tiki Bar in Great Falls, MT. The lounge is the site of Rick Hill’s infamous adulterous episode. Basically, Hill’s first wife once put her three children in the car and drove to the Sip and Dip, where Hill was hanging out with the barmaid with whom Hill was cheating. They asked daddy to come home, but he told them to scram. The Great Falls Tribune reported the incident at the time. Hill is still among a group of Republican’s seeking the party’s nomination for Governor.
The Great Falls Tribune is reporting that a film crew spent a couple of days on location:
filming interviews of people applying to be mermaids in the O’Haire Motor Inn pool, which is visible through a glass wall in The Sip ‘n Dip. They filmed [the woman who runs the place] sewing mermaid costumes and interacting with staff, as well as a mermaid performance.
The pilot will be pitched to cable networks.
