WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – The upcoming NBC sci-fi series Revolution will be filming inside the office building located at 201 S. Front Street Tuesday.

According to film permits, the scenes will be set inside a bank and insurance office. They will also film characters peeking inside the old bank building from outside.

Five actors and five extras are expected to be involved in these scenes. Traffic should not be impacted by the filming.

NBC recently held a Facebook contest to bring an early screening of the show to their town. Wilmington didn't make the top 10, but NBC added the Port City as a "bonus" screening since the series is being filmed in the area.

Details about time, place and how you can get a ticket are still forthcoming.

You can watch Revolution each Monday night at 10:00 on WECT starting on September 17.
