WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Crews for the new Hulu television show Reprisal will begin shooting the first scenes for the pilot episode on Wednesday, Sept. 12, according to a film permits from the City of Wilmington.

The permits indicate that interior shots will be filmed at the downtown restaurant, Circa 1922, located on North Front Street. Crews will also film interior scenes on Sept. 13-14 and Sept. 17 at homes on Wayne Drive and West Renovah Circle.

Drivers should be aware that there will be intermittent traffic control at all three locations during filming.

According to A+E Studios, Reprisal is a hyper-kinetic revenge tale following a relentless femme fatale.

The show stars Abigail Spencer (Timeless) who plays Katherine Harlow, a woman who was left for dead but survives and takes on the new persona of Doris Dearie. After years of relative peace and quiet, Doris' niece is taken by the same gang that tried to kill her, which prompts Doris to go on a revenge-filled rescue mission, according to plot synopsis posted at TVLine.

The series is expected to premiere sometime in 2019.
