HBO’s ‘Plot Against America’ to shut down DC streets this weekend for filming

An HBO miniseries is filming in downtown Washington this weekend, and along with lights, cameras, action, multiple streets will be closed over the course of the filming.

The TV juggernaut is shooting “The Plot Against America” — based off Philip Roth’s novel — in D.C. from Friday to Sunday.

It’s a period piece set in an alternate 1940s and includes era-style clothes and military.

WTOP sports reporter J. Brooks describes what it's like for actors who audition or act in shows when they come to D.C.
