Roads closed: Apple Studios filming new series in Wyndmoor on Monday

Rep. Napoleon Nelson announced that Apple Studios will be filming an episode of a new series titled “Catamount” in Springfield Township on Monday, February 12.

According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Catamount is a new Ridley Scott project for Apple TV+. The limited-run drama is based on the crime novel “Dope Thief” by Dennis Tafoya, who grew up in Philadelphia and lives in Bucks County.

The filming will take place at the intersection of Willow Grove Avenue and Flourtown Road, and at the intersection of Willow Grove Avenue and Traymore Avenue in Wyndmoor.

Filming is reportedly scheduled for locations across the Philadelphia region through July, and has already scouted locations in several Bucks County townships, including Bedminster, Tinicum, and Bristol. The show will also film at Sun Studios in Aston.

The following traffic and parking impacts will take place on Monday:

Road Closures:

Scenes will involve the production crew working with equipment throughout the area.
