The new suspense TNT limited series I Am the Night is set in some interesting period locations in California. The six-episode thriller is based on a true story involving the case of Black Dahlia, an American actress found murdered in 1947, and the suspect assassin Dr. George Hodel.

Fauna Hodel (performed by India Eisley, Ashley from The Secret Life of the American Teenager) is an adopted girl living outside Reno (Nevada), who begins to investigate her past, along with reporter Jay Singletary played by Chris Pine (Wonder Woman, Outlaw King).

I Am the Night was filmed in and around Los Angeles and Hawaii. In exclusive, we have gathered this list of the most relevant filming locations of the series:

I Am the Night house
The strange mansion of Dr. George Hodel is set in the historical John Sowden House, also known as the 'Jaws House' because of the shape of the front entrance (pictured below). Designed in Mayan Revival style in 1926 by Lloyd Wright (son of the the famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright), the house features a central courtyard with a swimming pool. It is located at 5121 Franklin Avenue in Los Feliz neighborhood, Los Angeles.

The Greystone Mansion is an iconic film location at 905 Loma Vista Dr, Beverly Hills.

Some bar scenes were filmed in the Deco Bar of Hollywood American Legion Post 43's Memorial Clubhouse, located at 2035 N. Highland Avenue. Actor Chris Pine also appeared in the same bar while playing Captain James T. Kirk in Star Trek (2009). Fun fact: the purple tint of the overhead lights and the ones along the front of the bar are leftover from the Star Trek shoot; the wood doors to enter and exit the bar have purplish plastic inserts, and were also installed in '09 when the production redesigned the space.

  1. The bar scenes in "I Am the Night," with Leland Orser and Chris Pine, were filmed in the Deco Bar of Hollywood American Legion Post 43's Memorial Clubhouse, located at 2035 N. Highland Avenue. Actor Chris Pine also appeared in the same bar while playing Captain James Tiberius Kirk in "Star Trek" (2009). (Fun fact: the purple tint of the overhead lights and the ones along the front of the bar are leftover from the "Star Trek" shoot; the wood doors to enter and exit the bar have purplish plastic inserts, and were also installed in '09 when the production redesigned the space.)
