According to local news reports a TV show titled Crime will be filming in Albany from July 16 through July 21. Of course, we know that Crime is the working title for the Netflix series The Punisher which stars Jon Bernthal.
The scenes will include gunfights which prompted a local agency to reassure locals that “This is NOT a real fight — it is a scene for a TV show. Albany Police Officers will be supervising and assisting us with our work to ensure everyone’s’ safety.”
If you’re in Upstate New York and want to check it out, here is a list of street closures set to take place during filming:
