Being on Set
Earlier this year I had a chance to visit with the cast and get to know the people behind this hilarious show. During the #ABCTVEvent we were able to go on set. You guys know i LOVE a good set visit. TV magic is incredible and I enjoy seeing the little intricacies that happen behind the scenes.
Matt Shively who plays “Jimmy” and Bebe Wood met us and gave us a little tour of their “house” and a few other fun things.
They were getting ready for the Christmas episode when we arrived and everything was coated like a winter wonderland. Here’s a Fun Fact: It took the crew just 24 hours to transform the set to look like winter. Just another hint of TV Magic that shows it’s the little things that work together to make a show great.
See what I mean when I said it’s the little details? The entire house was decked out for the upcoming Christmas episode. It reminded me of home and made me get in the holiday spirit extra early. It also showed me that having a set would help the actor get ready and get in the proper “head space” for each episode.
In the last 2 photos you can see where they take away parts of the ceiling to add lighting because we all know that good lighting is key. Behind The Scenes magic is pretty cool right?
