Hollywood loves a Boston backdrop! Showtime’s City on a Hill – starring Kevin Bacon and Aldis Hodge has been filming a pilot in many neighborhoods in the city and Dorchester is one of them. City on a Hill is set in Boston in the early ’90s and a fictionalized account of the“Boston Miracle” aka Operation Ceasefire aimed to end youth gun violence on the streets. This new series is being produced by Ben Affleck and Matt Damon. Michael Cuesta (Homeland, American Assassin) is directing and executive producing.
On Wednesday morning, one CID reader sent us a photo of a scene setting up for shooting in Savin Hill. Spotted was one Kevin Bacon!
The show, which began shooting in December, also stars Dorchester native Kevin Chapman, best known for his work in “Mystic River,” Jill Hennessy, Cathy Moriarty, Michael O’Keefe, Amanda Clayton, and Rory Culkin.
