The popular Amazon television show co-created by Bryan Cranston, “Sneaky Pete,” is filming scenes at Norma’s Corner Shoppe and another location in Ridgewood today.

Between the hours of 6 and 11 a.m., crews will film scenes where actors are eating outside of a food truck on Catalpa Avenue between Woodward and Onderdonk avenues.

Requests have been made to place benches on the sidewalk, a food truck to be parked on the street, and to have a police officer in uniform. Crews will also be operating a camera in the curb lane.

Then, from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., interior and exterior scenes will be shot at Norma’s Corner Shoppe located at 59-02 Catalpa Ave. In the scene, actors will pull up in a car, cross the street and hold interior dialogue scenes inside the coffee shop. There will also be an FBI car parked outside of the location where interior dialogue scenes will take place.

For the duration of filming parking restrictions will be as follows:

  • Half of the north and south side of Catalpa Avenue between Onderdonk Avenue and 60th Street;
  • One quarter of the east and wide side of Woodward Avenue between 68th Road and Catalpa Avenue;
  • Both sides of the entire block on Onderdonk Avenue between Myrtle and Putnam avenues;
  • The full block, both north and south sides, of 69th Avenue between Onderdonk Avenue and 60th Street; and
  • Two truck lengths along the east side of Forest Avenue between Catalpa and 70th avenues.

This is not the first time “Sneaky Pete” ventured into the neighborhood to film scenes for the show. Back in July, crews shot scenes at a junkyard on the Ridgewood/Maspeth border.

“Sneaky Pete” stars Giovanni Ribisi as Marius Josipovic, a released convict who assumes the identity of his cellmate in order to avoid his past life. Season one of “Sneaky Pete” is available on Amazon Video.
