CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- Viewers of the Emmy Award winning show "Homeland" may notice a familiar Fighting Lady in the background of an upcoming episode.

The crew for "Homeland," which stars Claire Danes as a bipolar CIA officer, will visit Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum this week to film aboard the USS Yorktown. Officials with Patriots Point say the filming will not disrupt any daily visitors to the ship.

"We're pleased the producers of ‘Homeland' selected the USS Yorktown as a location to film for their series," said Patriots Point Executive Director Mac Burdette. "This series will shine a national spotlight on Patriots Point and we're proud to be a part of this outstanding production."

The USS Yorktown has been featured in several productions, including "Tora! Tora! Tora!," which recreated the attack on Pearl Harbor.  The Yorktown was also featured in the TV series "Get Smart" in 1968 and on the SyFy Channel's "Ghost Hunters" in 2012. Patriots Point has also been the backdrop for several scenes for the Lifetime drama "Army Wives."
