TV Show Starring Kevin Bacon Films in Watertown Monday

Trucks and trailers being used by crews filming the TV show “City on a Hill” took over part of the parking lot at Filippello Park on Monday. Watertown residents got one degree of separation from Kevin Bacon Monday, when the actor came to town to film an episode of a new Showtime detective show. Evidence of the Hollywood production could be seen in the parking lot at Watertown’s Filippello Park, off Grove Street, which served as the staging area for about a dozen trucks, trailers and other items being used for the making of “City on a Hill.” However, the stars of the show — Bacon, Aldis Hodge and Jonathan Tucker — could not be seen at the park. “They are filming in Mount Auburn Cemetery,” said Watertown Assistant Town Manager Steve Magoon.
