Warner Brothers studio is the only place on earth where you can hold an Oscar, sit in Central Perk from the set of Friends and transform into Batgirl all in one afternoon.
I am usually always busy working while in LA and rarely have time to check out tourist activities but last week on a day off I was able to spend the day at Warner Brothers Studio for a VIP Deluxe Tour of the studio. So many of my favorite TV shows and movies have filmed at this location in sound stages and back lots on the property over the past 40 years. It was amazing to stand there in person and see how it all comes to life.
I love TV and spend most of my plane time binge-watching downloaded TV series. Many of my favorites including Gilmore Girls, Hart of Dixie, Friends, Sex & the City, The Big Bang Theory and Young Sheldon have all filmed onsite at Warner Brothers. During the tour, we were able to see The Big Bang Theory filming an episode of their last season, Conan O’Brien’s studio, and tour the new soundstage for Taye Digg’s new football drama All American that will premiere on CW this fall.
The deluxe tour also takes visitors into the amazing costume department and prop house on the property. We saw original props from Casablanca, The West Wing, The Matrix, Batman and countless other movies and TV shows.
One of my favorite movies series of all time is Batman so we could see many props including the Batmobiles during the tour. At the end of the tour, you can also film a small video and take pictures using green screen technology riding the bat-cycle from the Dark Knight Batman movies so of course I took advantage and transformed into Batgirl for a few minutes.
Overall it was a great day and I would recommend the tour for anyone who had some time in the LA area.
