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?
About the Author
Hi, I'm Pete Rizzo, early morning elixir for your weekends. I love music and I love talking about it. I grew up listening to bands like Rush (best band on the planet!), Van Halen (Diamond Dave all the way), AC/DC (Bon rules!) and Genesis (the Gabriel years). But my true love is progressive rock and heavy metal. The louder, crunchier, more bombastic and self-indulgent, the better! When I’m not on the air, I’m either training in martial arts, deciding which tattoo I should get next, reading a good book (I still enjoy turning actual pages), or my wife and I are planning our next big travel excursion. I’m on every Saturday and Sunday morning. You can also follow me on on Twitter @PeteRizzoWBAB. I’d love to hear from you.
