GLASGOW has been transformed into New York City as Benedict Cumberbatch, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Lord of the Rings Star Hugo Weaving prepare to hit the city for a new TV series.
Melrose, a Sky Atlantic show will follow the character of Patrick Melrose, “an aristocratic and outrageously funny playboy” who turns to substance abuse to erase bad childhood memories of his abusive father and a mother who tacitly condoned the behaviour.
 The programme is set in the south of France in the 1960s, New York in the 1980s and London in the early 2000s.
As well as changing bank building signage in Bothwell Street over to popular New York names like The Drake Hotel, and covering up red post boxes with graffitied metal boxes, an array of yellow cabs and other US vehicles took over the streets of the city centre for pre production activity yesterday ( Saturday)
Yesterday cones were put around the streets to stop cars from obstructing the Film set and cars which were parked after 4pm were towed.
Roads around the city will be closed between October 29 and November 3 to accommodate the production including Bothwell Street, Bothwell Lane, St Vincent Street and Renfield Street.
In recent years Glasgow has been turned into various American destinations due to its grand architecture and grid system of streets.
