WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. – For the past six months, a new HBO series about a post-Rapture world has been filming all over Westchester County, including locations in Harrison, Hastings-on-Hudson and Mount Vernon, where it has set up shop at Haven Studios.

The show, "The Leftovers," premieres Sunday, June 29 at 10 p.m. A half-hour spotlight show, "The Making of 'The Leftovers,' " has already premiered and can be seen Friday, June 27 at 9:30 p.m. on HBO.

Haven Studios opened in 2013 and Nicole Zeller, who runs it with her sister, Gabrielle, said having “The Leftovers” film there has been a lucky break.

“It’s been going great. They’re great tenants,” Nicole said. “It’s been easy and it’s been great. I hope it continues and left overs is a success. Sunday night is the premiere and it’s very exciting.”

The show stars Justin Theroux, Amy Brenneman, Christopher Eccleston and Liv Tyler. The show is based on Tom Perrotta’s novel by the same name, which begins with two percent of the world’s population disappearing off the face of the earth in a Rapture-like scenario. It explores the “Leftovers” coping with the unexplained, random loss of loved ones.

Perrotta tag teams with “Lost” co-creator Damon Lindelof on the 10-episode series.

Before the premiere, the fictional town of Mapleton only exists inside Haven Studios, where filming is set to wrap next week. A police department set bears wanted posters, police insignias and plaques dedicated to the officers of this town.

Friday, County Executive Rob Astorino, of the very-much real Westchester County, proclaimed June 29 “Mapleton, New York Day in Westchester County.”

“Westchester’s beautiful parks, shorelines, historic Main streets, suburban neighborhoods and bustling urban areas provide great backdrops for movies and television shows,” he said.

Other recent television shows that filmed in Westchester include “The Blacklist,” “The Following,” “Elementary,” “Person of Interest,” “Boardwalk Empire,” “The Americans,” and “The Good Wife.”

Another HBO show, “Girls,” filmed at Jimmy’s Pizza in Mamaroneck in 2011, as well as Harrison and other towns.

Eastchester residents Dominick DeBenedictis, 19, owns Gramatan Bagel Café on 552-554 Gramatan Ave. in Mount Vernon, where his little sister Julia started working two weeks ago. They have been delivering bagels to the New Haven set during the six months of production, sometimes as early as 5 a.m., when DeBenedictis said his store opens.

“It’s nice to meet all the people that run the show and are behind the scenes,” he said, adding that he never got a peak at the sets or actors.

Friday, he and a select few others got a tour of the various sets.

When these film crews come in and make other peoples lives a problem, by taking up parking spots and causing causing traffic, they should open the catering truck, ( like throw us a bagel) to everyone with a driver's licence proving they're from the neighborhood! It would compensate for the heart attack almost caused by looking out the window and seeing a crowd of zombies attacking the police! I believe these picture taking movie makers should stop with all these here scary movies ! My dog won't stop barking and I'm scared to open the door these days! But I guess if it brings a few dollars into the local economy we must make do and accept this malfun function of society .

Whenever a film production company needs to film crime scenes, they can always find them on the streets of Mount Vernon.
