For more locations, check out our calendar above and keep in mind Monday, 5.31.10 is Memorial Day so most productions will be off.

Have a great weekend!


  1. -Not sure what Apprentice is. Thought maybe it could be re-shoots for Sorcerer’s Apprentice?
    -And just to reiterate, the Johnny Depp commercial isn’t confirmed.
    -If anyone else finds anything for the weekend, let us know, thanks!
    Enjoy the long weekend!

    • Th e permit no. is TV-99, so it’s a tv show, not a movie. Saw casting calls for people to appear as stand-ins for promos for The Apprentice, so I imagine Mr. Trump is back to his original show.

  2. I saw signs today on Madison for the Smurfs for shooting on Sunday from 6am-10pm. Think it was Madison and 51st but am not completely sure.

  3. Is it possible they are filming the Trump show “The Apprentice?”

    Seems like season should be over but who knows with reality tv

  4. Duh, it just hit me that Trump Tower is on 5th Ave b/w 56th & 57th, so I’m sure this has to do with season 10 of the Apprentice. There were casting calls for applicants last March & April. They are probably just shooting a promo for the new season, which is what the casting calls on Thurs. said.
    They’ll probably start shooting the new season sometime this summer, but it won’t air until next year. Celeb Apprentice that just finished airing was shot in late summer and fall last year.

  5. Of course I also thought it could be the tv show but it seemed weird to me they would start the new one on a holiday weekend- but maybe you are right, it could just be a promo or something.

  6. On season finale of Celebrity Apprentice this year, Mr. Trump mentioned they would be doing both The Apprentice and The Celebrity Apprentice next season, with the former coming out first. So this shoot must be a gearing up for the first one.

  7. I drove by MSG I saw them doing some filming, didnt see johnny depp but i think he’s on set a bunch of autograph hounds and a few photogs

    • So far all we have is rumors on the Johnny sightings in NYC over the weekend. Did anyone actually see him? Does anyone have pictures?

      We’d all love to see them!

  8. Today (Sunday) Mildred Pierce is filming on Metropolitan Ave. in Queens – police have blocked off Metro. from Union Turnpike to Woodhaven Blvd. I was able to see a handful of 1930s style cars while passing by.

  9. Any word on any Eclipse premiere or events in NYC? I’ve been asked quite a few times but haven’t seen anything yet, has anyone else?

  10. added a few updates for tomorrow in calendar- also heard White Collar is in studio tomorrow, can’t find anything filming today- if someone hears differently, please let us know!
