“Washington Heights” is a show about kids “trying to make something of themselves,” according to cast member JP. But before the premiere on January 9, let’s take a closer peek at the entire cast–and their ‘hood–in this behind-the-scenes footage from their MTV photo shoot.
What better setting to shoot the gang than their home turf? Though, when you opt for the field over the studio, real life sometimes gets in the way. Like when a rogue driver runs right through the set. The claws come out, and JP–the leader of the group–is quick to defend everyone by shouting, “You’re driving like a maniac!” But, hey, that kind of confrontation is nothing new in NYC, and these guys are not afraid of anything.
