Aziz Ansari filming Netflix series on Rivington St.
Fresh off the starring role in Parks and Recreation, popular television comedian Aziz Ansari is starring in a new untitled series bankrolled by Netflix. The production has been filming around the city since being approved last month.
A couple weeks ago, we caught him filming scenes inside Morgenstern’s ice cream shop on Rivington Street. The entire block was shut down for the shot.
Today, the actor-comedian is to film scenes in the vicinity of East Broadway near Rutgers.
Ansari co-created the show with Parks & Recreation co-executive producer Alan Yang. The Netflix show has a 10-episode straight-to-series order.
