    The NBC project being filmed around Philadelphia isn’t titled, according to IMDB.com.

    But, the John Eisendrath written project will be called Garza, reported KYW News Radio.

    Smits stars in the drama as a former Supreme Court Justice that starts his own law firm, according to IMDB.

    Onlookers were able to walk very close to the shoot and some people even were sitting on nearby front steps basking in the sun and watching Smits work his wonder.

    The shoot shut down a section of 21st Street between Spruce and Pine Streets. It also created nearly 100 film-industry jobs in the area, according to the Inquirer.
