N.Y. to resume exterior filming

Case-by-case permits to be issued starting Nov. 5

New York City plans to begin issuing film permits for exterior locations Monday, although not for any areas that were severely affected by Hurricane Sandy.

According to the Mayor’s Office of Film, Theater and Broadcasting, permits to shoot outdoors in Gotham – which have been suspended since the devastating storm hit the city Oct. 29 – will be granted on a case-by-base basis, and only for locales across the five boroughs that were left relatively unscathed by Sandy.

Through Nov. 4, the office will only issue permits to productions for filming on their stages. A number of productions have already picked up shooting on their stages; since Oct. 31, TV series including “30 Rock,” “Elementary,” “The Good Wife” and  “Blue Bloods,” among others, were all issued permits for indoor filming on sound stages. 

Film and TV production has picked up in a piecemeal process since the storm hit. Daily talkshows and latenight offerings came back online at different times over the course of the week, with some — such as “Late Show with David Letterman” — taping without audiences for an episode or two.
