The Company You Keep, starring Milo Ventimiglia and Catherine Haena Kim, premiered Sunday, Feb. 19. The new ABC crime series follows the love story of Charlie Nicoletti and Emma Hill. The two meet at a bar on the East Coast and hit it off right away. What they don’t know is that they belong to two different sides of the same coin. Charlie is a criminal and Emma is a CIA agent.
The series, which is set in the DMV (D.C., Maryland, and Virginia), takes viewers to the wharves on the Baltimore Harbor, the stately suburbs of the District of Columbia, and likely will make a stop in Langley, VA where the CIA headquarters is located.
But is that a bit of Hollywood magic and b-roll shots helping The Company You Keep appear as if its on the Eastern seaboard when it’s really filmed elsewhere? Here’s what we know!
The Company You Keep filming locations
According to Distractify, it’s smoke and mirrors. The show not only isn’t shot in the DMV, but also filming didn’t even take place on the East Coast. The Company You Keep‘s base is Los Angeles, specifically at Paramount Studios on 5555 Melrose Avenue.
The studio is Hollywood’s oldest operating major studio and has been a part of the business for a century. Other series shot on its stages include NCIS: Los Angeles, The Rookie, and How I Met Your Father. So, if you thought Milo Ventimiglia really was driving a red sports car away from a building in D.C., think again because this show is all about the slight of hand just like the Nicoletti family.
Stay tuned to Hidden Remote for more ABC news and coverage! The Company You Keep airs Sundays at 10 p.m. ET on the network. New episodes are available to stream next day on Hulu.
