The Francis F. Palmer House from “Gossip Girl”

Sep 1st, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

A Gossip Girl tour of New York wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Constance Billard School for Girls/St. Jude’s School for Boys, the elite preparatory academy attended by Serena van der Woodsen (Blake Lively), Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester), Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick), and the rest of “Manhattan’s elite” teenage set on the CW series.  The only problem is that four different locations (yes, four!) actually portrayed the learning institution.  I visited (and blogged about) the most recognizable of the bunch, the Museum of the […]



The Empire Hotel from “Gossip Girl”

Aug 30th, 2017 | By | Category: Sex and the City Filming Locations

My friend Mikey, from the Mike the Fanboy website, always teases me for being a huge fan of “Hollywood randoms,” i.e. stars he has never heard of.  One of my favorites of the so-called randoms is Ed Westwick, who played Chuck Bass on Gossip Girl.  Out of all the male TV characters I’ve ever come across, Chuck is hands-down my most-loved.  (Jack Donaghy from 30 Rock runs a close second.)  The Grim Cheaper and I were obsessed with Gossip Girl when it was on the […]



The Cunningham House from “Happy Days”

Aug 25th, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

I consider myself a seasoned stalker.  I think most would agree.  Somehow though, until last month, I had never stalked one of the most iconic homes in television history.  I am talking about the Cunningham residence from Happy Days.  I did not even realize my colossal blunder until I was contacted by The Meredith Vieira Show about using some of my photographs in a segment they were running called “Name That Hollywood Home” last spring.  Producers were interested in utilizing a pic featured in my […]



Brand Library from “Scorpion”

Aug 21st, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

I am probably the only person you will ever hear say this, but I absolutely loved working as a background actor in Hollywood.  Sure, the hours were long and unpredictable and the work tedious and repetitive, but the opportunities I was afforded to be up-close-and-personal with the inner workings of movie and television production were unparalleled.  I reveled in observing everything from the rehearsal process to the stars’ make-up application to the Steadicam operators’ choreographed movements.  I also got to learn about and was granted […]



Happy Trails Catering from “Big Little Lies”

Aug 14th, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

As you probably noticed, I was unexpectedly MIA for most of last week.  My dad had an experimental five-day procedure done at a hospital in Orange County, so my family and I spent the week by his side.  I fully intended to write new content while there, but the hospital Wi-Fi wasn’t really amenable to that.  (What is it with hospital Wi-Fi, by the way?  I’ve literally never encountered one even halfway decent!)  But I am finally home and ready to get back to my […]



Scorpion Headquarters from “Scorpion”

Aug 7th, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

The Grim Cheaper and I tend to get hooked on a new series every summer.  Well, truth be told, we get hooked on new series all throughout the year (The Goldbergs, Veep, and Vanderpump Rules come to mind).  But during the summer months, we typically pick out a new-to-us show and binge-watch it nightly to avoid dreaded reruns.  In 2014, that show was Revenge.  In 2015, Scandal.  Last year, it was Suits.  And this year, it’s Scorpion, the CBS procedural that focuses on a group […]



The “Mama’s Family” Houses

Aug 4th, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

I have dreamed of writing this post for so long!  One of the locations I get asked about the most (I literally get emails and comments about it all the time!) is the house that portrayed Thelma Harper’s (Vicki Lawrence) residence during the first two seasons of Mama’s Family.  For those who aren’t familiar with the series and its locales, three different dwellings were actually used to represent the Harper family home throughout the show’s six-year run.  Two of them have long been well-documented online.  […]



The Campbell House from “Soap”

Aug 2nd, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

Something must be in the water, because this has been the most fortuitous week I’ve ever had when it comes to stalking.  Over the course of the past few days, not only have three of my most-wanted locations been found, but I was even granted access to the interior of one and, remarkably, it still looks exactly the same despite the fact that 27 years have passed since filming took place!  A post on that spot is coming soon.  Today though, I’m covering the Campbell […]



Carrie and Big’s Penthouse from the “Sex and the City” Movie

Jul 31st, 2017 | By | Category: Sex and the City Filming Locations

I know I am in the minority when I say that I like the 2008 Sex and the City movie.  Was it the greatest flick ever?  No.  But I did enjoy it.  Seeing it was like being with old friends again, friends I’d missed ever since the HBO television series went off the air in early 2004.  The more I watch it, the more it grows on me.  Though, again, I know I am in the minority.  One aspect of the movie that audiences did […]



Frank and Claire’s Townhouse from “House of Cards”

Jul 19th, 2017 | By | Category: TV Locations

It is a rare occasion for me to lay eyes on a Hollywood-designed set and not immediately want to move in.  But such was the case with the townhouse belonging to Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) and his wife, Claire (Robin Wright), on the Netflix series House of Cards.  While I love the handsome brick exterior of the politico couple’s pad (who wouldn’t?), the inside is just a bit too cold and a bit too stark for my tastes.  Though undeniably beautiful, Frank and Claire’s décor […]
