Showtime’s City on a Hill Films at Wartburg
Mount Vernon, N.Y. (July 30, 2019) – Wartburg, a premier senior care and housing provider in Mount Vernon, New York, was the backdrop during filming of the first Season of Showtime’s original series, City on a Hill. The episode featured various sites throughout Wartburg’s historic 34-acre campus and will air on Sunday, August 3 and 29 at 10 p.m. EST.
City on a Hill, set in Boston during the crime-ridden 90’s, stars Kevin Bacon as Jackie Rohr, a corrupt yet venerated FBI veteran trying to keep the status quo. He forms an unlikely alliance with DeCourcy Ward, played by Aldis Hodge, an assistant district attorney who has made a reputation for himself for proposing corrupt cops in jail.
Over the course of several days, Wartburg hosted the cast and crew of City on a Hill including stars Kevin Bacon and Jill Hennessey with over 40 crew members of Possible Productions, Inc. Wartburg’s campus will be featured in Episode 8 of Season 1 and will feature a special appearance of Wartburg’s own Sheila Walker as a security guard.
“Wartburg’s blend of modern and historic buildings and room for various staging activities has always made it an ideal location for location work,” said Wartburg’s President & CEO David J. Gentner, Ed.D. “The cast and crew of City on a Hill were extremely professional and a real pleasure to host. It was great to see how a series like City on a Hill is filmed.”
