HBO Series Big Love to air D.C.-based episodes

The HBO series Big Love, chronicling the lives of a fictional Mormon family, will move their cast from Utah to Washington D.C. The third episode of the new season, which begins Jan. 10th, will have the series in the nation's capitol for multiple episodes.
 
Actress Sissy Spacek (The Coal Miner’s Daughter) will play a lobbyist who is determined to set herself as a fixture in patriarch Bill Hendrickson’s life. In September, actor Bill Paxton, who plays Hendrickson, and actress Chloe Sevigny, who plays one of Bill’s wives, were filming scenes in town, DCist reported.
 
The Washington setting could perhaps be due to the fact Bill is set to run for Senate this season.
