Your Eyes Aren't 'Lying': Film Crew Renames City Hall

Austin City Hall is ready for its close-up.

As seen in the photo above, the building has been rechristened Maricopa County Courthouse for the day. No, it has nothing to do with controversial Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio; instead, an episode of ABC Family teen soap opera “The Lying Game” – filmed in Austin, but set in Scottsdale – is being filmed there.  

City staff tells KUT News production crews have changed the sign outside, and decorated the City Council chambers to resemble a courtroom. 

City business is still proceeding inside, and filming should be concluded by the end of the day.
