I’m admittedly a diehard fan of Fox‘s show 24, which besides making news for the number of deaths this season, has its headquarters in the San Fernando Valley (the soundstages from what I understand are located in Woodland Hills). This would explain why I’ve recognized several Valley locations on the show (including the Northridge Fashion Center), and thanks to the the previously-mentioned JackTracker, they’ve become rather easy to pinpoint.
Updating a previous post when Fox filmed an episode of the series last season at the nearby Metrolink station in Chatsworth, I came home from work last night to discover that Fox will again be in the neighborhood filming scenes tonight from 7:00 PM-3:00 AM for an upcoming episode at a nearby cul-de-sac… and there will be gunfire, sparks, and an explosion. Awesome!
Exterior dialogue. Drive-up and away, intermittent traffic control, intermittent pedestrian control, simulated explosion of tank set up in the middle of the cul-de-sac, 1/4 load automatic gunfire, sparks on ground.
The fascinating part about the notice this time around is the fact that FilmLA added a survey to the usual notice fo rthe purposes of “…evaluating neighborhood concerns regarding the proposed filming activities.”
