Lights, camera, action in Peekskill

After having been delayed for a day due to rain, HBO film crews arrived in Peekskill this week to begin filming a new miniseries.

Local residents flocked to downtown Peekskill to admire the 1930s film sets and get a glimpse of the cast of the miniseries "Mildred Pierce," which stars Kate Winslet, Guy Pearce, Evan Rachel Woods and Mare Winningham.

The series tells the story of a proud, single mother, played by Winslet, struggling to earn her daughter's love during the Great Depression in Los Angeles.

The HBO crew will be shooting in Peekskill through Monday. The series will air in 2011.
