TV filming to close N. Main, Hwy. 20

Filming for the AMC TV series "Halt and Catch Fire" will close sections of N. Main Street and Ga. Hwy. 20 at various times starting tomorrow.

One of the scenes involves a simulated carjacking, City of Conyers spokeswoman Jennifer Edwards told the News, alerting the public that "it is fictional and not to be alarmed."

"Halt and Catch Fire," which will debut later this year, is a tech-business drama set during the 1980s personal computer revolution. The production previously shot interior scenes at a Conyers house.
