Now that "Portlandia" and "Grimm" have reached their final seasons, Portlanders have wondered what's next for the city's film and TV industry.

It appears as though an answer came sooner than expected.

HBO will be filming a pilot episode of a new show starring Tim Robbins and Holly Hunter next week along N Mississippi Avenue.

Residents and business owners received a letter this weekend, alerting them of the shoot for "Here, Now" on Tuesday, April 25 between 6 a.m. and 11 a.m.

Here are the locations:

  • N Mississippi Ave between Mason and Cook
  • N Shaver Street between Albina and Michigan
  • N Failing Street between Albina and Michigan
  • N Beech Street between Albina and Michigan
  • N Fremont Street between Albina and Michigan

According to the website TV Line, the 10-episode show will center around a middle-aged couple and their four kids, three of whom were adopted from Somalia, Vietnam and Colombia.
