A production crew working on a television program for the Starz Network is hoping the weather stays clear in Ponca City today as they film downtown.

For the past week, a crew from Toronto has been in town finding props and locations to use in a segment being shot here. The Toronto operation is working with Mad Sweeny Productions of Tulsa.

The Ponca City location is one of several Oklahoma sites being filmed for the program. The name of the production has not yet been released.

Among the props being used in the shooting are three Yellow Cabs which have been brought to Ponca City for generic traffic background. Local companies have been used to provide some additional props, including My Favorite Things and Cherokee Strip Company.

Ponca City Police officers are handling traffic control and pedestrian traffic today to give the crew a window of time for filming without interruption.

Today’s filming is on Grand Avenue between Second and Third Streets. City residents are asked to avoid the area today.
