Netflix films at Corey Beach

Posted

This past week, a Netflix production company was filming on Corey Beach for “Jigsaw,” a decades-spanning heist series taking place in Manhattan.

Originally approved to shoot two weeks ago, COVID-19 precautions delayed filming.

Starring in the series is a familiar face for fans of “Breaking Bad” and “Better Call Saul,” Giancarlo Esposito, who portrayed ever-the-cool-headed gentleman and drug kingpin, Gustavo Fring.

Some controversy surrounded the filming earlier in the week when a local community member was upset that the production team had covered up a memorial sign for his deceased wife.

Councilman Neil Foley (R-5th District) was able to get in touch with the production company, which “apologized profusely” and ensured that it was a temporary sign for purposes of filming only.

Ridley Scott’s Free Productions is producing the series.
