Perry 'Preys' on Covington

Town House Cafe on Washington Street was transformed Thursday while Tyler Perry and the cast and crew of "The Family That Preys" filmed in downtown Covington. The cafe was converted into Alice's Wing & A Prayer Diner for the shoot. Filming was expected to continue at Whitehall, a historic home in the downtown area on Friday. The movie stars Academy Award winner Kathy Bates and Academy Award nominee Alfre Woodard as matriarchs of two very different families being torn apart by greed and scandal, according to a synopsis released by Lionsgate Publicity.
