NBC Universal's The Endgame was shooting in the Financial District today. They were shooting Episode 9 of Season 1, which premiered on NBC on February 21st.
I watched as the crew set up a dolly track in the street in front of 70 Broad Street. On most days, this is the Center for Leadership Performance in the American Bank Note Building, but today, it was the home of Windsor Fidelity.
The special movie unit of the NYPD showed up with guns, which were inspected 3 times by 3 different people. One onlooker mentioned that they weren't going to have an Alec Baldwin situation here.
When the stage was set, the building was being raided by the FBI with star actress Ryan Michelle Bathé, actor Jordan Johnson-Hinds, and a tactical team in full gear. The shot drew many spectators from finance bros to tourists to school kids.
The Endgame is described as "a pulse-pounding high-stakes two-hander about Elena Federova (Morena Baccarin), a recently captured international arms dealer and brilliant criminal mastermind who orchestrates a number of coordinated bank heists throughout New York City for a mysterious purpose. Her antagonist is Val Turner (Ryan Michelle Bathé), the principled, relentless and socially outcast FBI agent who will stop at nothing to foil her ambitious plan."
The show was written and executive produced by Nicholas Wootton. Jake Coburn, Julie Plec, Emily Cummins, Andrew Schneider and Justin Lin, who directed the pilot, are also executive producing.
Below are some photos from the set.
