Thanks to the magic of TV-making, there's a new medical cannabis dispensary on Avenue A... temporarily taking the place of Avenue A Deli & Grill just south of St. Mark's Place for a scene today...
Crews for "Law & Order," an American police procedural and legal drama TV series now in its 47th season, were also spotted on Avenue B and Eighth Street.

This morning in TV shoots

Photos by Derek Berg 

EMTs were spotted removing a body this morning on Seventh Street between Avenue A and Avenue B... as part of a shoot for "American Horror Story" ("Bandana" on the posted film notices)...
Crews for AHS were in the East Village back in the summer as filming for season 11 got underway. 

And this block of Seventh Street is apparently getting popular for TV deaths: "Law & Order" investigated a young woman's murder along here in February.

Wednesday's parting shot

We had another serving of "Yogurt" today... the code name for "Up Here," a new musical series set in the 1990s for Hulu. 

The cast includes Mae Whitman, Carlos Valdes, John Hodgman and (above, I think!) two-time Tony Award recipient Katie Finneran

As you likely noticed, this is a big production with film trucks on Avenues A and B, Seventh Street... and more.

Getting down to 'Brass Tactics' once again

Another major production is slated to film on Avenue A and some side streets early next week. 

Film notices are up now for "Brass Tactics," codename for the new Apple+ series "City on Fire." (The series is based on the book of the same name by Garth Risk Hallberg.)

"Brass Tactics" has filmed around here several times, dating back to the springThe cast includes John Cameron Mitchell and Jemima Kirke. "City on Fire" is written and executive produced by Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, whose current credits include the "Gossip Girl" reboot.

Recent TV productions along Avenue A include the aforementioned GG ... "American Horror Story" ... and "Up Here."

'American Horror Story' brings the porn and 1980s mobiles to 9th Street

Top photo by DP; the rest by Steven 

Film crews for a TV series with the code name "Bandana" (aka "American Horror Story," season 11) are filming on Ninth Street between First Avenue and Second Avenue (and along Avenue A and elsewhere) this evening. 

And the liberal Hollywood perverts have converted a storefront on the block is now a "video peeps" shop...
There are also some cars that your friend's older brother drove in high school...

Crews are setting up for a production with the code name "Yogurt" here on Seventh Street between First Avenue and Second Avenue. 

It's a TV series with a retro vibe, given the assembled 1990s-era props here ... and NOT TRASH!
Anyway, the crews will be filming around here ... we saw notices on Avenue A... the Bowery... among other places. And we'll see if we can uncover what "Yogurt" really is (ASIDE from a popular food produced by bacterial fermentation of milk).

Updated 12:36 p.m.

Thanks to Emily, via the comments. The series is called "Up Here."

Here's more via Deadline:

Former Good Girls star Mae Whitman has been tapped as the female lead in Up Here, Hulu's musical romantic comedy series from Tick, Tick… Boom! and Dear Evan Hansen writer Steven Levenson, The Carmichael Show's Danielle Sanchez-Witzel, Hamilton director Thomas Kail, and the Frozen and WandaVision songwriting duo of Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez.

Filming notices for 'Gossip Girl' outside Key Food; see you in the aisles xoxo

Crews for the HBO Max reboot of "Gossip Girl" will be in the neighborhood today (Thursday!) and tomorrow (uh, Friday!). 

EVG GG Watchers© have spotted filming notices on Fourth Street and along stretches of Avenue A.

Storylines for season 2 have been kept under wraps, so we might as well speculate what the young adults from Constance Billard-St. Jude's School are going to be doing.

The proximity of the notices to Key Food can only mean that the grocery will play a — pardon this — key role in a plot line, like (typing out loud here) that Zoya buys a "cake for any occasion" here as a makeup gift for the canceled Julien or Monet de Haan has a crisis of it-girl status while looking for the moved-several-times Skinny Pop. Or maybe the gang stops by for to-go sushi for lunch on the steps of the Met. (Yes, it's out of the way and not really very good, but through the magic of TVmaking, the Brooklyn Bridge seems like 4 blocks to Central Park.)

(As an aside: Given the no parking signs around Key, where are all the delivery trucks going to idle/double park over the next two days? On the lawn at Village View?)

Anyway, GG notices are also posted outside Katz's, which might mean a GG-corned beef combo is in our future... one can dream!
Season 2 reportedly started filming in February, with a shoot here on March 1. No word on a release date.

The East Village was a popular location during the run of the original CW series (2007-2012) ... like outside Doc Holliday's ... or inside Veselka.

This week in film-TV shoots

There's a busy week ahead for filming around the East Village ... tomorrow sees "Big Indie Smith" shooting along Avenue A and Tompkins Square Park (and 14th Street between Avenue A and Avenue B).

"Big Indie Smith" is code for a TV series remake of the 2005 Brad-and-Angelina vehicle "Mr. & Mrs. Smith." Donald Glover and Maya Erskine (taking over for Phoebe Waller-Bridge) are the leads in this series for Amazon Prime. 

Notices are up along Fourth Street between Second Avenue and the Bowery for "Brass Tactics" ... code for the upcoming Apple+ series "City on Fire" based on the 2015 book by Garth Risk Hallberg. (We wrote about this production here.) Both BT pics by Derek Berg

Crews were prepping Rivington Guitar (Pawn Shop!) today for tomorrow's shoot ...

A reader shared this from First Street between First Avenue and Second Avenue... where there's a TV commercial filming over the next few days...

Thursday's parting shot

We received a lot of queries today about what was filming on Avenue A along Tompkins Square Park ... the production notices read "Nine Orchard," which is likely a fake name. 

Anyway, we don't know! But! There may have been a stunt vampire, per this phot by Derek Berg...

Wyatt will pay you to move your car on 9th Street

Photos by Steven 

There are posted film notices for tomorrow on Ninth Street between First Avenue and Second Avenue for something titled "Zoo." 

Later, on the south side of the street, someone (Wyatt? Wyatt's assistant?) placed flyers on several cars...
... offering the owners 60 bucks if they move their cars by 5 a.m. tomorrow...
How about it?

Last looks at today's 'Law & Order' shoot

Photos by Derek Berg 

As we've been mentioning (here and here and here), "Law & Order" is back with new episodes after a 10-plus year absence from NBC (obvi reruns play every few minutes on cable). 

Anyway! Today's filming action along Seventh Street between Avenue A and Avenue B saw the return of Anthony Anderson's Det. Bernard and newcomer Jeffrey Donovan as Det. Frank Cosgrove ...
The two were seen checking out a crime scene in a van...
"Law & Order" returns with its first episode on Feb. 24.

'Law & Order' makes triumphant return to East Village streets

If you've watched even 15 minutes of the Winter Olympics on NBC, then you've likely seen a promo for the return of the original "Law & Order" on Feb. 24.

Expect to see part of the East Village in the upcoming season. The L&O crew will be setting up for a shoot on Tuesday along Avenue A and various side streets between 10th and Third, per the posted signage. (And vehicles need to be moved tomorrow by 3. Photo below by Steven.)
This 21st season will once again feature Sam Waterston as Jack McCoy ... new cast members include Odelya Halevi as ADA Samantha Maroun, Jeffrey Donovan as Det. Frank Cosgrove and Hugh Dancy as senior prosecutorial assistant Nathan Price. 

The Emmy-winning series originally ran for 20 seasons on NBC, from 1990 to 2010, with 456 episodes, spawning 36 four spinoffs and a movie. The franchise has been a regular presence on EV streets during its run.

And for some nostalgia, here's the intro to the "Law & Order" pilot episode from 1990...

Any signs of the East Village in the 1st trailer for Marvel's 'Hawkeye' series?

Back in December, crews for the new Disney+ series "Hawkeye" via Marvel Studios spent several days filming in the East Village (under the name "Anchor Point"). 

In the series, Jeremy Renner is reprising his Marvel Universe role as the superhero Hawkeye and his alter ego Clint Barton while Hailee Steinfeld plays his protégé Kate Bishop (also known as Hawkeye). 

Anyway! The jocular first trailer for the eight-part series dropped today... looks solid, though there's no sign of the Discount Wine & Champagne's shop on 4th and A... or Key Food... but, at the 1:15 mark, that could be a building along Szold Place near 11th Street, a filming location...


"Hawkeye" debuts on Nov. 24. 

And revisit Stacie Joy's photos from along Fourth Street and Avenue B here.

Lotto love for the East Village in this TV spot

Back on July 21, crews were filming scenes for a New York Lottery commercial in Tompkins Square Park and on 10th Street at Avenue A. (Top photo by Derek Berg!)

That TV spot for Twice Daily Draw Games is now out in the wild... (Thanks, Upper West Sider, for letting us know!) You can check it out below...


'Blue's' explosion!

You've likely seen these posted film notices along Avenue A and some side streets for something titled "BC&Y," which is obviously more gratuitous mayhem about dope fiends and Nazi vampires corrupting our youth and/or society. [Shaking fist at sky

Anyway, "BC&Y," turns out, is short for "Blue's Clues & You!" — "a live-action/computer-animated interactive educational children's television series." It's a reboot of the 1996 Nickelodeon series. (Thanks to Vinny & O for the pic and show title!)

Still, what's up with the blue puppy?

Expect some 'Meet Cute' moments this week

Filming notices are up along First Avenue and on parts of Sixth Street (and elsewhere?) for "Meet Cute," a romantic comedy starring Kaley Cuoco and Pete Davidson. 

Per Deadline:
"Meet Cute" ... is a wildly inventive deconstruction of the romantic comedy built around the question: What would you do if you could travel to your loved ones’ past, heal their traumas, fix their problems, and change them into the perfect partner?
The production started filming in NYC this past week. Per these notices, the crews will be here this week Monday through Wednesday.

A warm and fuzzy shoot for NY Lottery in Tompkins Square Park

Crews were out this morning setting up for a New York Lottery commercial in Tompkins Square Park... Derek Berg got a look at the fuzzy numbers...
... we also heard they had an pre-Cemusa newsstand up on Avenue B at 10th Street...
