Ted wanted us to know and to help spread the word that:
The Old Town House Restaurant will be closed on Tuesday March 16th to facilitate this production. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Last time the production crew was in OB, they used Ted’s restaurant. Here’s what we said then:
The project, from Fox21, centers on two PI partners with maturity issues who solve crimes while trying to avoid danger and responsibility.
On June 09, 2009 the filming network gave a green light to “Terriers,” a show from “The Shield” creator Ryan and “Ocean’s Eleven” writer Ted Griffin. The idea came from Griffin, a “Shield” fan who penned an episode of the gritty FX cop drama.
And in a follow-up article, here’s what we reported:
The series, about two knuckle-brained private investigators, has been picked up, and 13 episodes will be shot – ostensibly in OB. The show is to be on the air in April of next year. The series includes an “Ocean Beach Police Department” whose decals have been handed out to favorites in the community.
They filmed in Ted’s restaurant for 12 hours, he said, for only 3 minutes worth of the show. Ted pointed to the front corner where the filming took place. His wife, Kathy, was an extra. He learned a lot, he said, in how a television production actually happens. With the money they paid him for use of his place, he’s buying a refrigerator. Chill deal.
We are not certain if they still are, but the production crew was looking for locals to play extras.
