SHOOT: KING & MAXWELL’s Jon Tenney Dupes a Bad Guy

King & Maxwell filmed a big scene in Chinatown yesterday of secret-service-agent-turned-private-investigator Sean King (Jon Tenney) driving north on Taylor Street when a “bad guy” in a truck speeds out of Shanghai Alley and rams him.  I dropped by in the afternoon when crew shot King (Jon Tenney) rolling out of the front seat and hitting the ground as the “bad guy” fired multiple rounds from his machine gun into the back seat of King’s Lexus, where he expected to find a key witness. Guess he missed the old switcheroo.  Later in the early evening,  crew filmed close-ups of the “bad guy” opening the door to find a dummy riddled with bullet holes — not the witness. Score: King 1. Bad Guy 0. King and his partner secret-service-agent-turned-private-investigator Michelle Maxwell (Rebecca Romijn) then came round behind the “bad guy” and arrested him.

King & Maxwell wraps filming of its first season of ten episodes this week in Vancouver.

RENEWAL: FALLING SKIES Renewed for Fourth Season & Headed for Comic-Con

TNT ordered a fourth season of sci-fi summer hit Falling Skies today with [12] new episodes to be filmed in Vancouver under a new showrunner David Eick (Battlestar Galactica). Shot here since the second season, this series about a small band of insurgents fighting against an occupying alien force remains the top summer drama on basic cable in the U.S., averaging almost 6 million weekly viewers after DVR playback is counted.

It’s a family show in a post-apocalyptic setting featuring Tom Mason (Noah Wyle) and his three sons — the eldest Hal (heartthrob Drew Roy), once-harnassed middle son Ben (Connor Jessup) and youngest son Matt (Maxim Knight) — and now one baby daughter with pediatrician Anne Glass (Moon Bloodgood). Other surviving resistance fighters in the 2nd Mass (Boston insurgent group named after the 2nd Massachusetts of the American Revolution) include Captain Weaver (Will Patton), Maggie (Sarah Carter) and frenemy John Pope (Colin Cunningham).
