Movie Filming in Ptown.

Post by jeffkett »

I picked up on this a little late....

"Hightown," originally announced last year as "P-Town," a nickname for Provincetown, stars Monica Raymund ("Chicago Fire") as National Marine Fisheries Services officer Jackie Quinones, who warily teams with state-police detective Ray Abruzzo (James Badge Dale) after the body of the latter's confidential informant washes ashore. Amaury Nolasco ("Prison Break") plays Frankie Alvarez, the imprisoned head of a local opioid ring that ties into the case.

Created by Rebecca Cutter, a writer for "The Mentalist" and "Code Black" and a former producer of "Gotham," the series is from Starz P-Town Productions and Jerry Bruckheimer Television.

PROVINCETOWN — Filming in Provincetown for the Starz network production of “Hightown” began on Friday, May 31 and continues through Friday, June 7. During that period there will be periodic road closures, detours, parking restrictions and delays, Acting Town Manager David Gardner said.

The Carnival parade scene will be filmed on Tuesday, June 4 between 2:30 and 8:30 p.m. on Commercial Street. A complete schedule of dates, locations and times is listed below.

There will be no filming over the weekend of June 1-2, but long-term parking of vehicles will not be permitted near or within the rotary at the Provincetown Inn starting Sunday, June 2 at 7 a.m. through Thursday, June 6 at 10 p.m.

“Please respect security and signage posted while they conduct their work,” Gardner wrote. “Any detours will be properly signed. Please avoid set locations to prevent excess crowding and further back-ups.”

Filming is scheduled to be completed by the morning of Saturday, June 8.
