PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — If you noticed helicopters flying and hovering over the city last night, there was no cause for alarm; it was just film crews continuing work on Jason Momoa’s newest Netflix movie.“Sweet Girl” started filming right here in and around the Pittsburgh area in late 2019. Production is now continuing into the new year.
Crews were spotted near the Golden Triangle over the weekend.
A camera rig, attached to the back of a car, was set up along Stanwix Street and Liberty Avenue.
There were also lighting crews and service trucks in Gateway Center.
The helicopters flying over PNC Park and the David L. Lawrence Convention Center were also part of the excitement.

Danette Levers changed her Facebook profile picture at 7:34 a.m. Friday.
There’s a pretty good chance she won’t ever change it again.
She waited for months to upload that photo of her standing next to Tom Hanks. She idolizes the actor. She can recite most of his movie lines from the likes of “Big” and “Forrest Gump.”
Levers wasn’t allowed to upload it until the movie “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” premiered nationwide last week. Hanks plays Pittsburgh’s favorite neighbor, the late Fred Rogers. The connection between Levers and Hanks began when she was 13 years old. Her father had died. She turned to watching Hanks’ films to help her through her grief.

Former Fox News anchor Shepard Smith made a surprise donation of $500,000 to the nonprofit Committee to Protect Journalists during a speech Thursday night in which he did not mention Donald Trump by name, but alluded to him on multiple occasions. “Intimidation and vilification of the press is now a global phenomenon,” Smith said. “We don’t have to look far for evidence of that.” The speech at the International Press Freedom Awards dinner was the first public appearance for Smith since he abruptly left the channel last month. “We know that journalists are sometimes wary of being perceived as activists for some cause,” he said. “But press freedom is not the preserve of one political group or one political party. It’s a value embedded in our very foundational documents. Journalists need to join hands to defend it.” Smith was a founding staffer of Fox News, where he worked for the last 23 years.

This marked the first time all three original American Idol judges have reunited together with Clarkson since she won the first season of the show in 2002, which kickstarted her now-Grammy-winning music career, not to mention her new status as a TV star.
“I actually genuinely do not believe we would be sitting here today if you hadn’t entered the show that year,” Cowell said. “The whole premise of the show was we had to find a star who was gonna sell records. We found some great people that whole year but when you delivered that moment on that first live show, when you sang that winning song at the end-“
