An episode of a new HBO show will be filmed in Macon in April, and it could affect your daily commute.

Scenes for the TV show “Brooklyn” will be shot downtown from April 14-18. Some downtown streets, including sections of 2nd and 3rd streets, will be closed off during the filming, according to Macon-Bibb County.

“Brooklyn” is the working title for “Watchmen,” a science fiction comic book series about superheroes who were able to alter history, several media outlets reported.

Scenes from the pilot episode of “Brooklyn” were filmed in Atlanta and Macon last year.

The show stars Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Jeremy Irons, Adelaide Clemens, Regina King, Frances Fisher, Don Johnson and Louis Gossett Jr., according to IMDB.com.

While filming is currently scheduled to end on April 18, the production company may also shoot scenes on April 19 if needed.

Macon-Bibb County will receive $17,000 for the road closures. Businesses that will be impacted by the road closures will be compensated by the production company, said Michael McNeill, assistant attorney for Macon-Bibb County.

April 15: 2nd Street will be closed near the intersections of Poplar Street to Mulberry Street; Cotton Avenue; Cherry Street from 1st Street to 3rd street intersections

April 15-17: 3rd Street from Poplar Street to Cherry Street

April 16: Cotton Avenue from 1st to 2nd Street; 2nd Street from Cherry to Mulberry Street; 3rd from Mulberry Street to Plum Street
