I am a native East New York girl, so the opportunity to see them film in my neighborhood and finally have folks see where I come from is a proud moment.
I was more than a little excited about this one so I am happy to share the first look at this.
The story synopsis is as follows:
Regina Haywood is the newly promoted deputy inspector of East New York, a working-class neighborhood at the eastern edge of Brooklyn. She leads a diverse group of officers and detectives, some of whom are reluctant to deploy her creative methods of serving and protecting during the midst of social upheaval and the early seeds of gentrification. East New York – New Drama Sunday @9|8 c This Fall on CBS.
Starring: AMANDA WARREN KEVIN RANKIN JIMMY SMITS RUBEN SANTIAGO-HUDSON RICHARD KIND ELIZABETH RODRIGUEZ LAVEL SCHLEY and OLIVIA LUCCARDI
Here is the extended trailer:
The open sequence is actually New Lots Avenue and Livonia Avenue. It’s not a set. It’s a real location. All those stores are there. The cleaners the filming they did was between Cleveland and Ashford Street. Interesting enough The Mike Tyson movie that will come soon was filmed on the exact same block.
