County parks officials on Friday said they planned to closed South Inlet Park in Boca Raton while film crews shoot scenes for an upcoming production, but declined to name the movie.
Internal county emails show Viacom, Inc. and Paramount Worldwide Productions, Inc. are at the park today filming for Baywatch.
A copy of the permit issued by the county’s Film and Television Commission was emailed to county commissioners over the weekend.
According to the email, the park will be closed until midnight today. The production is expected to close the park again on Feb. 29.
