Where Was My Life Is on the Line Filmed?

Long Island, New York

The production team of ‘My Life Is on the Line’ headed to the southeastern region of New York State, particularly in Long Island, to lens almost all the pivotal sequences of the Lifetime thriller. To shoot the indoor scenes, the cast and crew members supposedly took over a few real-life locations and set up camp in one of the film studios located in and around the island. As for the outdoor portions, most of them were likely recorded in different neighborhoods and streets in order to get a suitable backdrop.

While filmmakers usually take over different parts of Long Island while filming, there are a few favorite sites where many tapings tend to occur, including the waterfront areas in Gantry Plaza State Park and Hunter’s Point State Park, bridges, restaurants, and historic landmarks.
