Kevin James

The former ‘King of Queens’ is moving back to Long Island for his next TV show. Kevin James, Mineola-born and Stony Brook-raised, is filming his new show, “Kevin Can Wait” in Bethpage.

Now Long Island has a rich history of movie and TV shoots. My all-time favorite flick with Long Island as one of its cinematic backdrops hands down has to be “Arthur” (not the awful remake, but the indelibly hilarious original with Dudley Moore).

,…and among the movie’s funniest scenes, the one with the moose.

Also, one of my favorite shows on TV now, “The Blacklist”, has used Long Island among its shoot locations numerous times.

How about you? What are your favorite TV and movie shoots on Long Island?
