WASHINGTON HEIGHTS — Crazy Eyes, meet Riverside Drive.
Netflix's hit show "Orange is the New Black" will invade Washington Heights on Friday as crews drop in to shoot a scene from the show's third season.
According to a notice released by the Mayor's Office of Film, Theatre and Broadcasting, production crews will be filming in an apartment at 790 Riverside Drive near West 157th street. A prop gun will be used in the scene, which will depict two actors eating dinner after one brandishes the weapon.
No shots will be fired during the filming.
"Orange is the New Black" depicts the daily lives of several inmates in a fictional upstate New York prison. The show debuted to rave reviews last year and its second season premiered on June 6. Netflix confirmed that show had been renewed the show for a third season in May.
The show films flashback sequences in various locations around New York. A Park Slope shoot made headlines last fall after a thief stole more than $4,000 in cables from the set.
Film crews will take over several streets from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday. Blocked streets will include the entire east side of Riverside Drive between West 156th and 157th streets, the entire south side of West 157th Street between Broadway and Riverside Drive, and the entire west side of Broadway between West 155th and 157th streets.
Parking will also be partially restricted on the east side of West 157th Street between Riverside Drive and Broadway and the north side West 155th Street between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue.
