Bonnie and Clyde TV miniseries films gangster tale on location in Louisiana

A new TV miniseries telling the story of infamous Great Depression gangsters Bonnie and Clyde has filmed on location in Louisiana. Bonnie and Clyde: Dead and Alive also doubled the state for various Mid-West locations, including Oklahoma, Texas, Missouri and Iowa.

Over 130 separate filming locations were used across Louisiana over the course of a six-week shoot, reports NOLA.com. These included Bienville Parish in the north-west corner of the state where the real Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow were killed by the authorities in 1934.

“It’s probably more locations than the producers wanted to make the movie,” Production Designer Derek Hill told the outlet, “but I think it gives us the authenticity and the look we’re trying to achieve. For the most part, it’s worked well.”

Louisiana has become one of the top production hubs in the US as a result of its location filming tax credit, worth a base rate of 30%. Science-fiction follow-up Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is among the high-profile features currently filming in the state.
