Ben Stiller, a Chappaqua resident, has been making some changes to the area.

A Route 9W road sign in the Hudson Valley was removed last week as part of the production for the upcoming miniseries "Escape from Dannemora," that Stiller is directing , according to Hudson Valley Post . The miniseries is about the 2015 prisoner escape from the Clinton Correctional Facility and Stiller was making the area look more like Dannemora.

The sign near the 9W entrance in Cornwall in Orange County, which was temporarily removed for filming, will be returned when production is done, according to Hudson Valley Post .

The miniseries stars Patricia Arquette, Benicio Del Toro and Paul Dano.

Joyce Mitchell, the woman who helped the two prisoners escape, was recently denied parole. She remains incarcerated at Bedford Hills Correctional Facility for Women. Mitchell is not eligible for parole again until June 2019 and could remain in prison until June 8, 2022, if she is not granted early release.
