“The Tick” has landed in Bayside.
Production trucks will line Bell Boulevard, 40th Avenue and 218th Street today and tomorrow between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m. to film scenes for Amazon’s new series, “The Tick.” A crew member on the set said they will film within a house on 218th Street and 40th Avenue both days.
A holding and catering area is also set up inside of the All Saints’ Episcopal Church on 214th Street and 40th Avenue.
Starring Peter Serafinowicz as the title character, Amazon is rebooting the series on its streaming service. “The Tick” was originally created as a comic book character in 1986 as a satire of the traditional superhero. It was then adapted into an animated series in 1994 and in 2001, a live-action series.
The series also filmed scenes in Glendale just last week. “The Tick” will also star Griffin Newman, Valorie Curry, Brendan Hines.
A pilot of the episode can be viewed on Amazon now. According to reports, the 10-episode first season will be added to the streaming service later this year.
