Sci-Fi TV series Fringe will be filming scenes at several landmarks in historic downtown Cloverdale Thursday.

Crews are filing inside one of the oldest businesses in town, Dann’s Electronics at 5657 176 Street, this afternoon before moving up the street to the cafe at the Clover Inn. The one-day shoot Sept. 1 is expected to wrap up at 9 p.m., and the production will be packed up and gone about an hour later.

There will be some parking restrictions in effect as a result; limited mostly to the 5700-block of 176 and 176A Streets, and the 17500 block of 56A Avenue.

The J. J. Abrams-produced series is set in Boston, where the FBI’s Fringe Division explores unexplained phenomena that seems to be part of a larger pattern with the help of an institutionalized scientist played by John Nobel. The show also stars Anna Torv, Lance Reddick and Vancouver’s Joshua Jackson.

It’s been described as Lost-meets-the-X-Files. Season 4 premieres Sept. 23 on Fox.
