Comedian Amy Schumer films Hulu series in Malverne


The parking lot at Angelo’s Pizzeria on Hempstead Avenue in Malverne was filled with a television production crew on June 14 as comedian Amy Schumer spent much of the day shooting a scene for her upcoming Hulu series, “Life & Beth.”

Streets were blocked off and police cars surrounded the pizzeria as the filming took place. Local Facebook group pages were buzzing throughout the day as word about Schumer had quickly spread in the village.

A Rockville Centre native, Schumer, 40, who is starring and directing in this upcoming comedy series, had filmed a scene in Rockville Centre last month. The show, which also stars Michael Cera and Michael Rapaport, is expected to premiere later this year.
