Student parking impacted due to HBO filming on campus

Student parking will be impacted by the closure of large portions of Parking lots D, F and L due to the filming of a pilot episode of an undisclosed HBO television series that is taking place on the west side of the campus throughout the week, officials said.

According to an email sent out by El Camino College to students and faculty on Monday, Sept. 30, half of Parking Lot D was closed to students but all of the staff parking was kept open starting on the same day.

The center and west sides of Parking Lot L were fully closed to students and 653 spaces in Parking Lot F were closed for specific production needs. All parking lots will be reopened on Thursday, Oct. 3.

The Union attempted to speak with crew members at the set but were turned away by an HBO private security officer when a reporter asked what type of filming was taking place.

ECC Director of Event Operations Bridget Delahunt said in an email to the Union that the filming taking place could not be specified due to non-disclosure agreements between ECC and HBO.

Delahunt added that another HBO television series episode and a Kentucky Fried Chicken commercial filmed at ECC were recently aired publicly. The new television series by HBO is planned to air in 2020.
