A new pilot is being filmed throughout Boston including of course Southie. 

“617” follows the antics of Griffin, Scotty, Sully, Alana, Siobhan and Cat -attempting to navigate life in Boston.  We’re gonna take a stab in the dark and guess that “Sully” is from Southie.  Local Gone Baby Gone hot spot Murphy’s Law will take main stage as one the gangs favorite hangouts (must be last call.)


Production of the pilot wrapped last month and the rest of the 6 episode first season will resume in June.  So expect to see film crews at Murphy Law.  Local hip-hop artist and actor Slaine (who had roles in Gone Baby Gone and The Towne) is included in the cast.  Sounds promising.  The creative force behind this series is Kate Shannon (nice Irish girl) a Massachusetts native and Emerson graduate. 

This series will be available free of charge through the series website www.617theseries.com.  Check it out! ??
