Great Island “will remain open to our residents as usual,” she said during the week of the shooting. Filming will take place during the day and not at night, “so there won’t be the big lights that you sometimes see in these productions” with filming taking place at night, she added.

“It’s about 50 crew and cast,” which is “relatively small” for a production, McNally said.

McNally didn’t name the production company, but she said it’s the same one that created the “Men Who Built America” ​​series. That series, first broadcast in 2012, was produced by Stephen David Entertainment.

McNally said the Connecticut Film Office was in contact with city officials about filming on the property, and McNally said she visited Great Island with the production company’s employees.

The city will be paid $24,500 for use of the property, she said.
