KCET Series Continues With the ‘Film Shoots’ Episode
by Jon Regardie
In the first few months of his “Downtown” series, KCET television host Huell Hoswer has discovered community treasures including the Eastern Columbia Building, the Los Angeles State Historic Park and the Downtown Art Walk. In an episode that airs this week, however, he encounters something that many in Downtown probably would not expect: New York City.
For the episode titled “Film Shoots,” Howser drops by the set of the TV show “CSI: NY,” much of which is actually shot in Downtown Los Angeles, not the Big Apple. It’s the latest in a long, long line of productions that have masked Downtown as New York, or many other cities (Baltimore, Washington, D.C., etc.), for that matter.
In the episode, Howser chats with some of the show’s actors, and explores one of Downtown’s most common sights – the film crews and their loads of trucks and production workers.
“Film Shoots” airs Wednesday, June 20, at 7:30 p.m. on KCET channel 28.
