A visit to a shoot on of a pilot for "Washington Field"
Today, Wednesday March 25, 2009 a production company did a shot on the Potomac River near Key Bridge leading into Washington DC for the pilot of a new series “Washington Field” about the FBI. The director is Jon Cassar and the creator is Edward Allen Bernero. The production company is CBS Paramount.
People lined up on the DC side of the bridge, overlooking the marina underneath Georgetown University, to watch the shoot.
There were kayaks and police boats on the river, and it was hard to tell what was real and what was a prop. It wasn't clear if the people in the kayaks and boats were the cast or stunt persons. This may have been a difficult shoot. There were supposed to be some pyrotechnics later, around noon, enough that Arlington emergency preparedness issued an email warning. The Arlington Fire Department was available across Key Bridge.
The crew was also due to shoot at Judiciary Square and at the Capitol today or soon.
Eddie Cibrian is said to play one of the roles.
Sorry, "rock star" President Barack Obama was not present for the shoot.
