Sept. 29, 2014 By Christian Murray

Several Sunnyside streets will be taken over Tuesday to make way for “The Good Wife.”

The CBS show, which has received widespread acclaim, will be shooting on Skillman Avenue (between 48th and 49th Streets), as well as on 48th Street (btw. 43rd and Barnett Avenues) and 49th Street (between Skillman and Barnett). Vehicles parked on these streets Tuesday are likely to be towed.

The show focuses on the fictional character Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies), whose husband Peter Florrick (Chris Noth), a former State Attorney, has been jailed following a notorious political corruption and sex scandal.

The series was partly inspired by the Eliot Spitzer prostitution scandal, as well as by other prominent political sex scandals, particularly those of John Edwards and Bill Clinton.

The show, which premiered in 2009, has won five Emmys.

The show has been going on for 5 years and this is not the first time they are filming in Sunnyside. I posted before, not sure what happened to my post but I wanted to find out which episode it was last time they shot on 43rd street around Queens Blvd. Any idea guys? They had a big crew in front of White Castle last time. Also these actors should do meet and greet for the community since they come here to film so frequently.
They have been shooting in LIC for years, constantly.

Funny filming in Sunnyside when the show takes place in Chicago. Should be interesting to see how that will look.

Im sure the sanitation dept will be out in full force the days ahead of the filming in cleaning the streets because now they are absolutely filthy. We should push our local elected officials for more garbage cans and have all merchants who sell consumable goods to provide a garbage can outside their establishments. Jimmy are you listening? Might be a photo opportunity in it for you
