Movie Filmed in Newton to Premiere Later this Month

The ABC Hallmark Hall of Fame movie, "The Makeover" was filmed in Newton back in October.

Back in October, parts of Homer Street and Commonwealth Avenue were filled with movie trailers and lighting rigs as the made-for-television movie "The Makeover" filmed at Newton City Hall. 

But when will we be able to catch the Garden City scenes?

As noted in an Oct. 17 article, we had a rough idea as to when you would be able to catch the movie, but now an official date has been set. 

"The Makeover," which stars Julia Stiles, will air on Sunday, Jan. 27 from 9 p.m. - 11 p.m. on ABC. 

According to the movie's website, Stiles plays an education consultant, Hannah Higgins, who decides to run for Congress in Boston. After a failed bid, Higgins and her business partner Colleen Pickering (Camryn Manheim) decide to recruit and coach a Southie beer vendor, Elliot Doolittle (David Walton), to run for Congress in the next election. 

During the taping in Newton, roughly 150 cast and crew members spread out across City Hall grounds, filming scenes involving Doolittle's campaign. 

Along with Newton, filming also took place in Somerville, Charlestown, and Boston.
