Who needs Hollywood when there’s the Holy City? “Southern Charm” is one of the most prominent depictions of Charleston in popular media, but it is far from being the only one. The Holy City has been both a setting and filming location in a number of TV shows and movies throughout the years, and Head2Head Trivia is celebrating that this week. Returning winner Claire Gibbons will be competing with College of Charleston adjunct math professor Daniel Rich.
