Six months later, ABC is returning to the Lower East Side to film scenes for its upcoming pilot, Forever. Today’s shoot runs the length of Clinton Street from Rivington to East Houston.

Forever is a sci-fi drama that follows the life of Dr. Henry Morgan, a 200-year-old man who spends eternity trying to find a way to reverse his immortality. Matt Miller (Chuck) is penning the pilot script. Veteran actor Judd Hirsch joined the cast last spring. The show will premiere on ABC September 23, with a sneak peek the night before.

To be honest, this program sounds like a rip from Pete Hamill’s fantastic 2003 novel of the same name…
