SARASOTA -- The City of Sarasota is coordinating with Sanborn Entertainment, a new Lakewood Ranch-based television production company, to facilitate filming a portion of a TV pilot over the weekend.
Motorists and pedestrians should expect intermittent traffic delays from U.S. 41 and the John Ringling Causeway to the Bird Key/Coon Key Bridge. Message boards will be posted alerting drivers to the delays.
“We’re very excited the City of Sarasota was selected for this shoot,” said Deputy City Manager Marlon Brown. “It will cause some brief driving inconveniences. But, we’re working with the production crew to minimize traffic congestion, while ensuring they’re able to film.”
Just three weeks ago, Sanborn Entertainment announced it would be bringing a television production studio to the area along with 117 jobs over the next three years.
