Have you seen the new show on ABC? If not binge now and catch up. It’s one of the new shows this season that just keeps getting better and better. Speechless shows a side that a lot of people are acquainted with and also tries to take the stigma out of those who may be “different”. While in town for #MOANAEvent awhile back I had the chance to go on set of this amazing show and it left me with a sense to make sure MORE people were tuning in weekly and gave Speechless a try. Let’s get to the set pictures!
Minnie Driver who plays Maya and John Ross Bowie who plays Jimmy both dropped in for a bit between filming their scenes and chatted with us Mom Bloggers about how much they both personally wanted to get this show out there because it means so much to them. When actors are truly passionate about their roles it makes me like them even more. They are passionate for a reason. This show is sharing what not so typical families are like,
Now let’s take a peek inside the house on Speechless and take a look at some tv magic at work!
We all know it’s the little things that make a house a home. Which is why when I get to go on set I love looking at the small things. What books do they have lying around? What pictures are in frames? What’s in bedrooms and on the coffee table? It’s always kinda cool to see just how in depth the set dressers go. I also like sharing pictures like the one above so you can see TV magic at work. Lots of good lighting above the regular lighting.
Micah Fowler who plays JJ also spoke to us for a short minute and told us all thank you for coming. It was so heartfelt that I had to wipe away a few stray tears.
TUNE IN TONIGHT
“R-A-Y-C RAY-CATION” – Maya enlists the family to assist JJ in romancing a girl at school, but it backfires when JJ expresses his feelings to Claire, and they are not reciprocated. Meanwhile, as the DiMeos are always late, Ray has the family practice to get to school in time for his upcoming weekend field trip, on ”Speechless” WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 30 (8:30-9:00 p.m. EST), on the ABC Television Network.
