ABC Drama Turns Back the Clock in Forest Hills

Upcoming show "Zero Hour" shoots scene in Station Square.

Production of Zero Hour, a mid-season replacement drama scheduled to debut on ABC early next year took over parking spaces, side streets and Station Square on Wednesday.

The cast and crew were in the neighborhood to shoot Station Square's Jade Restaurant from the exterior. The famous roundabout in Forest Hills was transformed into early-20th Century Germany for the production, complete with a new facade for the restaurant and mint-condition classic cars driving over the cobblestone streets.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Zero Hour stars Anthony Edwards, of ER fame, and centers around the editor of a skeptic's magazine who uncovers a century-spanning conspiracy.

The trade publication said the show will center around Edwards' character and his quest to unravel the mystery by locating timepieces that are central to the plot.

This isn't the first time that Forest Hills has been the backdrop for a historical set. HBO miniseries Mildred Pierce used Forest Hills Gardens as a stand-in for old Los Angeles in 2010.

CBS cop drama Blue Bloods has also had its fair share of scenes set in Forest Hills.

The most recent season of Mad Men featured a scene in the West Side Tennis Stadium, though that was shot entirely on a constructed set.
