Brotherhood returns to Rhode Island

The Rhode Island Film & Television Office has announced that Brotherhood, the critically acclaimed winner of a 2007 Peabody award, will commence photography for its third season on location in Rhode Island this month. The drama stars Jason Isaacs, Jason Clarke, Annabeth Gish and Fionnula Flanagan. It was created by Blake Masters and is Executive Produced by Masters, Henry Bromell and Elizabeth Stephen, and produced by Donna Bloom.

Brotherhood is the first television series to be filmed entirely in the State of Rhode Island. The premium cable network has ordered eight more episodes to be shot on location in Providence and East Providence, as well as other towns and cities within the Ocean State.

Steven Feinberg, Executive Director of the Rhode Island Film & Television Office, welcomed the groundbreaking series back to the ocean state, adding, “The return of Brotherhood will provide additional opportunities for our talented and dedicated local workforce. In the previous two seasons, Brotherhood has employed over 300 local, full-time crew members, and produced more than 225 speaking roles for local actors along with approximately 3,000 extra and walk-on roles. I would like to extend my gratitude to the Showtime executives, producers, cast and crew for making our beautiful state their location of choice.”
