Paul Smiths, New York – Goodbye, Wall Street. Hello Upstate New York.
Part of the seventh season of the hit Showtime series Billions was filmed in the Adirondacks, according to the Adirondack Daily Enterprise. The TV show filmed scenes around the snow-covered village of Paul’s Smiths in Franklin County last week – filming took place on the campus of Paul Smith’s College and at the historic White Pine camp, the newspaper reported.
Lights were installed on the scaffolding outside the college’s forest hut on Wednesday, and yellow signs placed on the roads around the village directed the film crew to “Base Camp”, “Catering” and “Billions” according to the Adirondack Daily Enterprise.
This is far from the first time a Showtime show has filmed the upstate.
Ahead of the show’s final season, Billions has announced a casting call for people to play the guests and staff of a hotel at Bolton Landing on Lake George in October 2021. In particular, the casting was looking for people with “upscale cars”.
Damian Lewis, who played hedge fund manager Bobby Axelrod in the fifth season. tweeted a photo of Lake Placid in October 2019.
The Showtime drama follows Paul Giamatti as U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhodes as he investigates hedge fund managers. Lewis, whose character fled to Switzerland at the end of the show’s fifth season, is set to return to the series next season.
Showtime has not yet announced when the show’s seventh season will premiere.
