TV Filming Takes Flight Across Westchester County

Several Westchester-shot shows, including The Flight Attendant with Kaley Cuoco, recently received a bevy of award nods.

Westchester has long served as prime location for movies and TV shows, but with the proliferation of streaming services, the 914 is more in the spotlight than ever. In just the past few months, Westchester-filmed productions have received seven noteworthy nods, ranging from the Golden Globes to the Screen Actors Guild.

Among this year’s biggest contenders at the 2021 Golden Globe Awards was the hit HBO Max comedy The Flight Attendant, starring Kaley Cuoco. Elmsford’s Motel 6, as well as The Galleria in White Plains and a private West Harrison residence all served as filming locations for the irreverent comedy. Cuoco received both Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild nominations for her performance, plus the show was in the running for Best Series, Musical, or Comedy at the Globes (although it did not win).

Meanwhile, silver-screen icon Al Pacino earned his own Golden Globe nomination, for Best Actor in a TV drama, for his work in the moody Amazon show Hunters, which filmed in Yonkers’ Untermyer Gardens, as well as at various locations in Ossining. And Ramy Youssef, star of the eponymous Hulu comedy Ramy, claimed both Golden Globe and SAG-AFTRA nods for Best Actor. Ramy often uses Valhalla’s Westchester County Correctional Facility as a filming site.

“[This] recognition signals the quality of production that’s taking place in Westchester and represents just a small slice of the success we have had with the film-and-television industry,” said County Executive George Latimer in a recent statement. “Going forward, we’re eager to work with location scouts and managers, producers, directors, and designers to help plan successful and safe productions.”
