Updates to Filming in the Historic District

TV Production:  "Council of Dads"

Universal Television continues to film the upcoming pilot for the television series “Council of Dads” in the greater Savannah area through March 2019.  There are TWO areas of filming that will take place this week.

Location 1:  On Friday March 22 filming will take place at the Pinky Master's Bar located on East Harris Street between Abercorn & Drayton. You will begin seeing prep crews setting up the day prior (3/21/19). During this prep time nearby street parking will be limited to allow for filming work trucks. The filming day (3/22/19) will start around 2:00 pm and end around 11:00 pm. During filming, access to East Harris Street will be closed due to street filming that includes rain effect.  The East side lane of Drayton Street will be closed starting at 6:00 pm to help light the scene. The wrap up will continue the following day (3/23/19) and should be completed by 1:00 pm. 

Location 2:  On Friday March 22 filming will take place  in Chippewa Square. You will begin seeing prep crews setting up during the day (3/22/19). During this prep time, nearby street parking all around the square will be limited to allow for filming work trucks and to keep it safe for filming continuity. The filming (3/22/19) will start around 9:00 pm and end around 4:00 am. During filming, intermittent traffic control will take place to help control the flow of traffic around the square. This is both for the safety of you and the crew due to working in the streets. The wrap up will continue (3/23/19) and should be fully out of the square by 12:00 pm.

The production is working closely in conjunction with the City’s Office of Special Events, Film and Tourism 912.351.3837 and the Savannah Area Film Office 912.447.4159. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the production team (contact information below) or the city.  They send out their appreciation to the businesses and neighbors this filming is affecting.
