QUEENS — Lights! Camera! Action!

This Friday, filming for two shows will take over a host of local street in Forest Hills and Kew Gardens.

The popular Netflix series “Orange is The New Black,” which is set in a fictional prison, will be shot for its fifth season inside the Queens Detention Complex in Kew Gardens.

TV crews, which will film only interior scenes, will also be back in the neighborhood on Monday, sources said.

The show tells a story of Piper Chapman, played by Taylor Schilling, who had been convicted of transporting drug money and sentenced to 18 months in prison. 

The shoot will begin at 4 a.m. and end at midnight, according to production fliers posted in front of Queens Borough Hall.

► North side of Queens Boulevard, between 80th Road and 82nd Avenue
► South side of Queens Boulevard, between 83rd Avenue and the Van Wyck Expressway (half a block)

Also on Friday, new ABC show “Caine” will film in Forest Hills.
