Well this is awkward. OWS shuts down Law & Order: SVU set for OWS episode.
I hope the producers at least got some footage of this going on. I imagine that kid in Super 8 who, upon seeing that a train was about to barrel through his scene, yells “PRODUCTION VALUE!!!” at his cast and crew and orders them into positions to get the train into the shot.
Also: it’s kind of insulting that the City of New York would grant a film permit to the Law & Order folks allowing them to construct an OWS-style “camp” so close to the actual Zuccotti Park site. Of course, I understand that L&O aims for NYC authenticity. But seriously, they should’ve thought this through a little more.
This is New York! Happy Friday!
