“Do you know what huge film production is on Livingston? It shut down a few blocks all day!”– JOSH LAZAR
The Oprah Winfrey Network has begun filming the second season of its hit television show David Makes Man in Orlando this week.
The series, penned by Oscar-winning writer Tarell Alvin McCraney, features the coming-of-age tale of a 14-year-old prodigy trying to find their way out of poverty. Last season, a 1950s-style apartment complex was erected on property owned by Doctor Phillips High School and in the Orange Tree neighborhood, and sound stages at Universal Studios.
Filming is taking place near Trinity Downtown (Website) in Lake Eola Heights from Monday, February 1 through late night Friday, February 5. During the filming, the following streets will be closed:
- Harwood Street between Broadway Avenue and Cathcart Avenue
- Cathcart Avenue between Harwood Street and East Livingston sTREET
Orlando Police will be on-site to assist with street safety and overnight security guards will be monitoring all sets and trucks on-site. Residents are asked to avoid film crew so as not to burst their pandemic crew bubble.
Note: This project uses primarily Florida talent and crew and is locally produced by producer Wayne Morris.
