Jim Gaffigan Filming CBS Pilot on the Lower East Side Tomorrow
Comedian Jim Gaffigan is filming his CBS pilot series in the neighborhood tomorrow. The stand-up star (and Lower East Sider) joined forces with Rescue Me co-creator Peter Tolan for the new television project, simply named Gaffigan.
According to IMDB, the plot seems autobiographical in nature. A dude named Jim lives with his wife and two kids in a small two-bedroom apartement in NYC. Actress Mira Sorvino was cast to play his wife Jeannie. Not much else is known at the moment.
Filming notices are already in place, establishing a broad filming zone bounded by Chrystie, Essex, Stanton, and Broome.
