Who watches the Watchmen? The highly anticipated television series is based on the DC Comics graphic novel from the genius of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons. The action is taking place in a dystopian alternate reality where superheroes changed the course of history since they emerged in in the 1940s.

The main characters are played by Jeremy Irons as Adrian Veidt (aka Ozymandias), Regina King as Angela Abar (Sister Night) and Don -Miami Vice- Johnson as Chief Judd Crawford.

The series is set in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Watchmen was filmed in several towns in Georgia including Atlanta, and also in Wales (UK). We will be updating this report with more filming locations on the HBO show once it is released:
