Woodridge Productions was preparing yesterday to film the season finale of “Drop Dead Diva.”

Filming will take place all day today, (Tuesday, August 6 from 5 a.m.-8 p.m.) inside the historic courthouse courtroom.

On Wednesday, August 7, take down of all equipment will happen from 7 a.m.-7 p.m.

Probate Court offices and the Convention and Visitors Bureau/Welcome Center will operate business as usual. Both public entrances to the 1904 Courthouse (East and West main entrances) will allow unblocked access.

However, parking will be affected by the activity. Today, August 6, all 4 sides of the courthouse will be blocked off with the exception of 3-4 spaces on the east side which will be marked and can be used to access for courthouse business.

On Wednesday, August 7, 2013, spaces will be blocked on the east side and some of the north side.  Officers will be stationed in that area to assist.
