Joliet isn’t a stranger to being the backdrop on both the small and silver screens, but having three productions in town at the same time is a bit rare!
First, shooting at the jewel of Joliet, is Fox’s new television dramedy The Big Leap. According to the Herald News:
Fox TV crews arrived [at the Rialto Square Theater] Tuesday for two days of set-up, and filming began outside the theater on Thursday. The schedule now is for filming inside the theater on Friday and Monday with a last day of filming outdoors on Tuesday.
On the west side of Joliet, residents are being moved around to make room for filming a TV pilot for a show called Single Drunk Female, as this notice indicates (thanks to Phil Darin for the pic).
Rumor has it that Chicago Fire is also in the area, though I haven’t been able to track down any real information on that.
