Whitestone residents can look forward to seeing their neighborhood on television once again, this time as a backdrop for the new CBS series called “BrainDead.”

From April 21 to April 27, CBS cast and crew will be present in the Queens neighborhood to shoot select scenes from the upcoming comic-thriller, including a scene where a woman jumps from a third story balcony into a bag in the Cryder’s Point Apartments.

The first episode of the series, produced and created by the duo behind the hit television show “The Good Wife” Robert and Michelle King, is scheduled to air June 13.

The show’s leading actress, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, will be present at the shoot along with supporting actor Charlie Simmons and a number of stunt performers.

According to IMDB, BrainDead follows a young, fresh-faced Capitol Hill staffer who gets her first job in Washington, D.C. only to discover two things: The government has stopped working, and alien spawn have come to Earth and eaten the brains of a growing number of Congressmen and Hill staffers.

During the shoot, which will take place at 160th Street between Powells Cove Boulevard and Riverside Drive, Whitestone residents can expect parking to be restricted from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m. Any questions concerning the shoot can be answered by calling 718-389-0065.
