The Dix Hills Diner and the neighboring Gold Coast Jewelry & Pawn on East Jericho Turnpike were closed Wednesday for the filming of the Netflix series “Jigsaw.”
While the filming centered on the jewelry store, the diner parking lot was filled with large trucks used to transport equipment and set materials used for the film.
According to Variety magazine, the series, which is primarily filmed in Brooklyn, stars Giancarlo Esposito, who starred as Gus Fring in the hit series “Breaking Bad,” Paz Vega, Rufus Sewell, Tati Gabrielle, Peter Mark Kendall, Rosaline Elbay, Jai Courtney, and Niousha Noor.
Eight episodes of the series have been ordered, Variety said. The story covers a 24-year period surrounding a huge heist, loosely based on an actual theft that occurred in Manhattan.
