10 Bushwick-filmed Shows and Movies to Look Out For in 2017
Bushwick will play quite a supporting role in movies and television this
This Jason Reitman-helmed comedy transformed a long stretch of Troutman Avenue into the set of a comedy about motherhood written by Oscar winner Diablo Cody. The casting call was a little suspect, so don't be surprised in Bushwick or Brooklyn in general become the butt of some jokes here come 2017.

"Bull" is basically the same as House, but
instead of Hugh Laurie, we get Michael Weatherly, and instead of a hospital, we get a courtroom. The show appeared to have rushed back into production after a full season order from CBS came through, and if you tune in,
you'll be rewarded with at least one scene shot in Market Hotel.

Remember that time back in March when Bushwick got 100,000 times cooler when Robert De Niro decided to appear on its streets? "The Comedian" appears to be about the life of an aging comic, but even though the film had a limited release and premiered at the Palm Springs Film Festival over the weekend, we'll have to wait another two weeks to find out more details and to see the Belvidere Street location transformed.

Claire Danes herself appeared in scenes on Bushwick's streets for this critically-acclaimed Showtime series. The first episode of season
six premieres on Sunday so you might get a glimpse of the Garden Playground they shot in sooner rather than later.

Everyone's favorite multitasker James Franco has been in and out of Bushwick shooting "The Deuce," an HBO series about porn and the 70s which seems to heavily feature Tina's Restaurant. No release date has been set, which may mean the production has suffered any number of set backs.

Master of None
This Emmy award-winning Netflix show starring Aziz Ansari shot on Starr Street last year, a perfect setting for a comedy about dating and living in New York City. The exceedingly bingeable show does not have a release date set for season two yet, but we can't wait to see our neighborhood in it.

What started out as an Above Average web series might become a kooky Comedy Central show in which comedians share personal stories while playing all of the characters in the reenactment. The identity of the comedian who used Bushwick as their setting is still under wraps, and the show does not have a premiere date yet.

Mozart in the Jungle
Who doesn't love Gael Garcia Bernal? In this Amazon Original Comedy, Garcia Bernal plays
an eccentric orchestra conductor who has a thing with the young oboist Hailey, played by Lola Kirke. In the first season at least, Hailey lived in something that looked like a Bushwick loft, and we're excited to see more!

You either love Batman or you don't care either way. This version of the Batman story revolves around detective James Gordon who was most recently portrayed in film by Gary Oldman in the Nolan Batmans and JK Simmons in some other Batmans. Anyway, for better or worse this Batman story is still going strong after three seasons.

This topical show about the surveillance state and cyber-security perfectly encapsulates
what's going on in our world right now, which is why the star Rami Malek keeps on winning all
of those acting awards. There's no set date for season three's release, but people paying attention suggest it'll happen sometime around summer.
