Albany streets to close for HBO filming
ALBANY – From Monday, Aug. 16 at 8 a.m. to late Thursday night, there will be some downtown streets and parking restrictions so film crews can film more of the upcoming HBO miniseries “The White House Plumbers.”
According to city officials, the series will begin shooting again after the crew and stars visit the capital in late June to film the Watergate themed show. The five-part series stars Woody Harrelson and Justin Theroux. One of the backdrops in June was the state education building, which took its place for a view of Washington, DC. There was a fake “DC Transit” bus, and a fake “Metropolitan Police” car also parked near the set.
