According to On Location Vacations, the TV series, in production for its third year, is shooting on Tuesday, Oct. 3 around Bowman Ave and Polly Park Drive in Rye.

The drama, created by Brian Koppelman, David Levien, and Andrew Ross Sorkin, stars Paul Giamatti and Damian Lewis and is loosely based on the activities of Preet Bharara, the former Attorney for the Southern District of New York and his legal battles with hedge fund manager Steve Cohen of S.A.C. Capital Advisors.

It has filmed many times in Westchester, most notably at the Jefferson Valley Mall, Yonkers Racetrack, the Empire City Casino, the Westchester County Airport, and Rye Playland. Many scenes are also shot in Rockland, specifically at the former Olympus Cameras Building on Corporate Drive in Orangeburg.

"Billions" isn't the only series filming in Westchester Tuesday. Folks may notice some commotion around Park Lane in West Harrison where the Netflix series "Luke Cage" is shooting.

The show stars Mike Colter and is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe where Cage, a former convict with superhuman strength, fights crime and corruption. 

According to Wikipedia, the series, which will start its second season in 2018, is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios.
