In Photos: ‘Shameless’ filming in Chicago

One of our readers, Aaron, caught up with William H. Macy on the set of his new Showtime series, Shameless, in Chicago Saturday. William chatted with the crew and posed for a photo with Aaron between takes.

The series, which is set in Chicago, primarily shoots in Los Angeles, but they did spend 5 days last week filming exteriors in a Chicago neighborhood near W Ogden Av & S Christiana Ave.

The movie is about a family of misfits, led by lovable alcoholic Frank Gallagher (Macy). According to Showtime, “Chicagoan Frank Gallagher is the proud single dad of six smart, industrious, independent kids, who without him would be… perhaps better off. When Frank’s not at the bar spending what little money they have, he’s passed out on the floor. But the kids have found ways to grow up in spite of him. They may not be like any family you know, but they make no apologies for being exactly who they are.”

The series also stars Emmy Rosum, Cameron Monaghan, Ethan Cutkosky, Emma Kenney, Jeremy Allen White, and Joan Cusack.
