Madam Secretary

photo, House of the Redeemer, the Jump

 

Just an exterior shot…. But what an exterior shot! Last night’s episode of Madam Secretary which included a shot of a terrorist jumping off the roof was shot at House of the Redeemer (a client). It took the Madam Secretary crew three days for a scene that took less than a minute. They had to bring in a huge crane that totally blocked the street, set up cameras on the roof, and practice with the actor who was making his first jump. Everything necessary for the safety of the actor and the neighborhood was done to carry off this amazing stunt. If you’re interested you can see the episode here (Paywall) – the stunt starts at about 14:20.

If you have an extra moment, do check out the behind-the-scenes setup.
