Be on the lookout for giant bugs roaming around Glendale.
Amazon will be filming scenes for the first season of their reboot of the cult classic, “The Tick,” along Myrtle Avenue, Cooper Avenue, and at Broadway Stages in Glendale, on Thursday, March 30.
From 7 a.m. to noon, film crews will be working on 81st Street between Myrtle Avenue and 78th Road. The scene will involve three SUVs driving down the street, obeying the 25mph city speed limit. The thugs in the SUVs will be holding firearms, but no shots will be fired.
This will lead to parking restrictions along the entire south side of Myrtle Avenue between 80th Street and 84th Street.
Various interior dialogue scenes will be filmed while driving along Cooper Avenue between 80th Street and Metropolitan Avenue during the times of 11 a.m. and 6 p.m.
The driving route will start at Broadway Stages’ Cooper Avenue lot, turn right onto Cooper Avenue eastbound, turn left onto Metropolitan Avenue westbound, turn left on 80th Street southbound, turn left on Cooper Avenue eastbound. The process trailer will drive in normal flow of traffic with an MTVU RMT car escort.
Finally, from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. various interior dialogue scenes will be filmed inside Broadway Stages located at 70-60 83rd St.
There are no parking restrictions in conjunction with the last two scenes.
“The Tick” was originally created as a comic book character in 1986 as a satire of the traditional superhero. In 1994, “The Tick” was adapted into an animated television show that ran for three seasons. In 2001, Fox created a live-action television series based on the popular cartoon. The show was abruptly cancelled before the first season finished airing.
Now, Amazon is rebooting the series on its streaming service, starring Peter Serafinowicz as the title character, The Tick.
