Producers Mark and Jay Duplass of the hit HBO series “Togetherness” contacted Diamond Jack’s earlier this year about filming a portion of a new episode at its Rivard Plaza dock on the Detroit River in Downtown Detroit. Diamond Jack’s was ecstatic to hear about this opportunity and jumped head first at the chance to be included in the program. On April 25, the production crew filmed a short scene on the Diamond Jack’s dock while 300 “glow bikers” watched as part of the background of the scene. The star of the series had ridden to the Rivard Plaza with all of the glow bikers from the Eastern Market as a part of the story-line in this episode. If you want to watch the scene, it will be in Season 2, Episode 3.
“Togetherness” is a comedy about two couples living under the same roof who are trying to balance their relationships with the pursuit of their individual dreams. Recognized writer/actor siblings Mark and Jay Duplass are creators of the series while Mark also occupies a starring role. Other members of the cast include Amanda Peet, Steve Zissis and Melanie Lynskey. Season 1 was very well received by critics and fans alike, and Diamond Jack’s is proud to be a part of the second season and wishes the best for all involved. With the Season 1 finale just behind us, be sure to keep an eye out for Diamond Jack’s appearance, and the star boat of the episode, the Diamond Belle, on “Togetherness” in January 2016.
