Ethan Hawke series filming today and tomorrow

No Parking Signs by Libby Hill

A Showtime series starring Ethan Hawke is now being filmed in Central Va and tomorrow and Saturday the film crew will be in Libby Hill Park. Please plan accordingly neighbors! This happened all day Thursday, pretty much all day today from 6 a.m. until Saturday at noon (or more depending on weather).

From the article:

“’The Good Lord Bird’ will be a fantastic showcase of all that our Commonwealth has to offer,” said Gov. Ralph Northam on Thursday. “Virginia has emerged as a popular destination for lucrative film and television productions, a hard-earned reflection of our film-friendly atmosphere, talented workers, and unparalleled scenery.”

According to a news release from the governor’s office, the series “is told from the point of view of Onion, an enslaved teenager who joins Brown during the time of Bleeding Kansas, eventually participating in the famous 1859 raid on the Army depot at Harpers Ferry. Brown’s raid failed to initiate the slave revolt he intended, but is often cited as the instigating event that started the Civil War.”

No Parking

Neighbors around Libby Hill, if you see something cool, like horses and Ethan, let us know!

Update: here’s a letter from the production company.
