Raleigh, N.C. — The Emmy Award-winning series "Homeland" will film some scenes for its upcoming third season in downtown Raleigh this week.
Filming will take place inside the North Carolina Supreme Court building on Monday and in and around the State Capitol and grounds on Tuesday.
The shooting schedule means changes for downtown traffic on Monday and Tuesday. Traffic on Wilmington and Fayetteville streets might be held or diverted when necessary during sound takes, and police will be on hand to maintain the safe flow of traffic through the area and to minimize any inconvenience.
Wilmington Street between East Morgan and Hargett streets will be closed to parking until 8 p.m. Tuesday, as will part of the east side of the 100 block of Fayetteville Street. There will be no parking on New Bern Place after 8 p.m. Monday, and the east entrance to New Bern Place will be closed to traffic at 6 a.m. Tuesday.
Also, the right lane of East Morgan Street will be closed between Fayetteville and Wilmington streets until 10 p.m. Monday.
The production company will not block any driveways and will keep the sidewalks open, city officials said. Local merchants and customers may access area businesses with minimal delays.
"Homeland," which airs on Showtime, stars Claire Danes as a CIA agent and Damien Lewis as a Marine she suspects of being a terrorist.
