TruTV‘s forthcoming show Friends of the People will be filming tomorrow evening in Ditmas Park proper, according to signs posted in the neighborhood. We noticed No Parking notices on the south half of E 17th Street between Ditmas Avenue and Dorchester Road, as well as on Dorchester between Marlborough and Rugby Roads.
Deadline says the show, featuring Kevin Barnett, Josh Rabinowitz, Lil Rel Howery, The Lucas Brothers, Jennifer Bartels, and Jermaine Fowler, will be split between scripted sketches and “man on the street” scenes. Although TruTV’s programming is has in the past been geared exclusively towards reality TV, the channel’s head of programming told Variety that Friends of the People is part of a larger effort to “lean a bit more on comedic content versus conflict-driven content.” The show also filmed in Park Slope last week, and is scheduled to debut a 10-episode season starting this summer.
Neighbors are being asked to move their vehicles by 5pm tonight. If you car is moved, contact location manager Chris at 646-751-3123.
