Cameras will be rolling inside of a private Valencia Street residence on Friday where scenes for an upcoming TV series, “Chance”, are set to be filmed.
Featuring “House” star Hugh Laurie, “Chance” focuses on a San Francisco-based neuropsychiatrist and is slated to launch on October 19 on the streaming service Hulu.
Flyers alerting Mission residents of the temporary filming activity indicate that Friday’s shoot will require several parking spaces for film crews on three blocks surrounding the Valencia Street residence between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m.
According to the flyer, “no parking” signs will be posted on Valencia Street between 25th and 26th streets, on 26th Street between Valencia and Poplar streets, and on Bartlett Street between 25th and 26th streets.
Manije Fata, film coordinator of SF Film, is facilitating the permitting process for TVM Productions, Inc., the Mission-based production company in charge of Friday’s shoot and said that while most of the scenes will be filmed indoors, one exterior scene is scheduled to be shot on Bartlett Street between 25th and 26th streets.
San Francisco police officers will be present “for safety and for traffic control” during the outdoor shoot, said Fata.
While permits have been issued in anticipation of an all-day shoot, Fata said that the film crew is likely moving to another location in the afternoon, freeing the parking spaces for residents.
