MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Filmmakers looking into democracy in America are pointing a magnifying glass at Memphis.

BBC has a crew in town following Mayor A C Wharton around town, learning more about municipal governments.

BBC said it chose Memphis because of the city's most famous resident, Elvis.

"Elvis Presley is a big icon in America," Nora Colie with the BBC said. "He's known all around the world, and so that's why we chose Memphis as one of those places to come."

Filmmakers did not release the name of their documentary, nor did they say when it might be released.

Once those details are available, you'll find them on WMCActionNews5.com.
