YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A new docuseries called “The Con” premieres virtually Wednesday night on social media, and some of it was filmed in Youngstown.
The five-part series takes an investigative approach into the causes of the 2008 financial crisis and its lasting impact.
Writer and director Eric Vaughan and associate producer Cindy Castro-DiRusso said about 40 to 45 background actors in the series are from Youngstown. They also shot many scenes downtown on Federal Street.
“Youngstown actually had a lot of great locations to offer so we ended up shooting a large portion of our recreates for especially Episode One in Youngstown, Ohio,” Vaughan said.
“The Con” premieres Wednesday at 8 p.m. on Facebook Live.
The theatrical release is on Aug. 7.
