If you hear what sounds like gunfire coming from the downtown Dallas area this week, it very well may be blanks being fired for a new TV show being filmed in the area. Crews have been hard at work in Dealey Plaza setting up for production and taking down signs in the area to make it look just as it did in 1963 for the filming of “11/22/63,” a miniseries based on the novel by Stephen King 11/22/63 about a time traveler who attempts to prevent the JFK assassination. Filming for the TV miniseries starring James Franco will be taking place in several areas of Dealey Plaza, closing off various streets to vehicle traffic.

Here are some streets that will be closed 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday:

  • 400-600 blocks of Elm Street
  • 400-600 blocks of Main Street
  • 100 blocks of South Houston Street
  • 100-200 blocks of North Houston Street

These streets will be closed 3 to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday:

  • 600-800 blocks of westbound Elm Street
  • 600-800 blocks of Main Street
  • 100 block of South Austin Street

There will also be parking garages and business entrances blocked off, and some Dart trains will be re-routed. For more info check the NBC 5 website.
