A Mississauga restaurant is set to be a filming location for a Hulu television series.
The eight-part, half-hour comedy series titled How to Die Alone stars Natasha Rothwell of Saturday Night Live and The White Lotus fame. Rothwell will write, star in and co-showrun the series, according to Deadline.
Port Credit BIA says Thai Signature Restaurant is a filming location for the series on March 15 and 16.
“Port Credit has gone Hollywood!” the BIA writes.
The filming will be interior scenes so there likely isn’t much chance of seeing the production in action.
Preparation for filming starts on Tuesday, March 14 between 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. The production is scheduled to wrap up on March 16 between 7 a.m. and 11 a.m.
Production crew vehicles have reserved street parking on the west side of Oakwood Avenue South between Lakeshore Road East and Wanita Road, and the south side of Lakeshore Road East (layby only) between Elmwood Avenue South and Oakwood Avenue South.
Vehicles will also be parked on private property by agreement with the property owners.
And a generator will be in the back parking lot of 203 Lakeshore Rd. E.
This is the second time Stage 49 Productions Ltd. has brought the filming to Port Credit. Remedy Rx Rite Care Pharmacy at 150 Lakeshore Rd. W. was also a location for How to Die Alone on Feb. 22.
It’s not clear if the production will return to Mississauga to film other scenes. The series is scheduled to film in the Toronto area from Feb. 6 to April 12, according to Ontario Creates.
The story follows Melissa, a fat, Black neurotic woman who’s never been in love, according to Deadline.
“After a comical brush with death, she refuses to settle for anything less than the life she wants, catapulting her on a journey to becoming ‘100% that bitch’ in real life by any means necessary,” Deadline writes.
Rothwell said the series has been years in the making.
“This is an actual dream come true— six years in the making,” she wrote on Instagram. “I legit couldn’t be more excited!”
