Disney+ pulls the plug on Baton Rouge-filmed ‘National Treasure’ series after one season

BATON ROUGE — The Disney+ series ‘National Treasure: Edge of History’, which was filmed in and around Baton Rouge, has been cancelled after only one season, according to Deadline.

The 10-episode series was an expansion of the wildly popular “National Treasure” movie franchise. Fifteen years after the last movie was released, the series brought in actors Justin Bartha and Harvey Keitel from the film to help tell a new story with a younger cast. Catherine Zeta-Jones also starred.

The series, which was produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, like the film, was primarily shot at Baton Rouge’s Celtic Studios and featured a number of local extras and crew.

Baton Rouge was a character of sorts in the series and the State Capitol, Old State Capitol, Old Governor’s Mansion, downtown library and the City Club of Baton Rouge were all locations heavily featured in the series.

Eagle-eyed viewers were also able to pick out downtown businesses, such as Squeaky Pete’s country bar, and the eccentric Spanish Town area.

The first (and now only) season of ‘National Treasure: Edge of History’ is currently streaming on Disney+.
