Summer is the best time of year to do some set stalking. Here’s a look at where you can find three high-profile movie and TV sets right now.
If you spent most of the weekend binge-watching Orange Is the New Black like I did, you probably heard a lot about the Litchfield, N.Y. prison Piper and her pals call home.

The announcement that Jurassic World is filming at the abandoned Six Flags in New Orleans, where “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” was also filmed last year, has caused a lot of buzz on social media.

If you’re interested, you can email a photo of yourself and your contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Walking Dead is also making the most of an abandoned building today.
