Lights, Camera, Bergen: NBC Show Filmed on Campus


Bergen film students watched the shoot and interacted with production staff.

PARAMUS, N.J. – Bergen Community College’s main campus felt more like Hollywood Oct. 10, with scenes for a spring 2019 episode of the new NBC spy-thriller “The Enemy Within” shot on its grounds.

In shooting three scenes, which featured actors Jennifer Carpenter (best known as Debra Morgan from “Dexter”) and Morris Chestnut (Dr. Beaumont Darius Rosewood, Jr. from “Rosewood”) and a host of others, the production crew from Universal Television, LLC even led a temporary transformation of some familiar spots on campus to capture the desired effect of the plot. Bergen officials negotiated with the production company to allow for faculty and students to observe the shoot and interact with the production crew.


The opportunity to serve as a soundstage for a major television production – and to provide students with unique experiential learning – comes just months after New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy signed the “Garden State Film and Digital Media Jobs Act” into law, making it easier for motion picture and television production companies to film in the state by providing tax credits. “The Enemy Within” represents the first show to take advantage of the new law. Universal Television spent two weeks shooting in area homes and businesses in Bergen County and the surrounding region.

The College previously hosted television shoots for shows such as HBO’s “The Sopranos” and motion pictures such as “Taking Chance,” which brought actor Kevin Bacon to campus.

Based in Paramus, Bergen Community College (www.bergen.edu<http://www.bergen.edu/>), a public two-year coeducational college, enrolls more than 14,000 students at locations in Paramus, the Philip Ciarco Jr. Learning Center in Hackensack and Bergen Community College at the Meadowlands in Lyndhurst. The College offers associate degree, certificate and continuing education programs in a variety of fields. More students graduate from Bergen than any other community college in the state.
