Hey, Los Angeles! Stay in the loop and be sure to check back every week for projects currently in production in the place you call home. Here’s the 411 on what’s filming big and small in your city.

“Are You Sleeping”
If you’re in L.A., keep your eyes open for “Are You Sleeping,” the latest series for the upcoming Apple streaming service. The series will be shooting at a private residence at 509 N. June St. (near Wilshire Country Club) all day. The series was created by Nichelle Tramble Spellman, is based on the novel of the same name by Kathleen Barber and “provides a unique glimpse into America’s obsession with true-crime podcasts and challenges its viewers to consider the consequences when the pursuit of justice is placed on a public stage.” “Serial” creator Sarah Koenig will be on board to consult the project, as well. The series stars Octavia Spencer, Michael Beach, Lizzy Caplan, Ron Cephas Jones, Aaron Paul, Elizabeth Perkins, and other major names. Filming just started earlier this month. Nina Henninger is serving as a casting director specifically for background actors in the San Francisco area, so keep an eye out for when the project heads to the Bay Area, as well.
