Kevin James is back on our screens with his latest series, The Crew.
The Netflix original is a sitcom based around a fictional NASCAR team but despite being a comedy, the show stays as faithful as it can to the motorsport it’s representing.
But just where was The Crew filmed? Were any real NASCAR locations used during filming?
The Crew on Netflix
The Crew arrived on Netflix on February 15th, the day after the 2021 Daytona 500.
The 10-episode sitcom stars Kevin James as Kevin Gibson, the crew chief for the fictional Bobby Spencer NASCAR racing team.
It’s not plain sailing for Kevin and the team, however, as the owner, Bobby Spencer, decides to step down, handing control to his daughter who has plans to modernise the team much to the annoyance of Kevin and his crew.
Where was The Crew filmed?
- The Crew was filmed at Gold Coast Studios in Bethpage, Long Island in the state of New York.
To give the series an authentic look, actual NASCAR race footage is used in a number of scenes and real NASCAR reporter, Jamie Little, can be seen throughout the show.
However, the series didn’t actually use any real NASCAR tracks for filming with almost all shooting taking place at Gold Coast Studios in Bethpage, Long Island.
Throughout production, Kevin James posted a number of behind the scenes videos to his Instagram which show off Gold Coast Studios in various states of set building.
