Not all of the studios in Hollywood churn out movies. A good number of them are television studios, producing the wide variety of local & network programming we've come to expect from TV.
This is a guide to the many TV studios in the greater Los Angeles area, complete with addresses, histories, the shows produced at each studio, and interactive maps for your convenience.
of the current television studios in Hollywood actually started out as
motion picture studios.
For instance, the KTLA TV studio on Sunset was actually built in 1919 as the first Warner Brothers Studio, where they filmed "The Jazz Singer." CBS's Columbia Square on Sunset was built on the site of the oldest studio in Hollywood, the historic Nestor Studio, built in 1910.
Center on Prospect Avenue was originally home to Vitagraph Studio,
built in 1911. KCET Studios to the east was built in 1912,
and used to house Monogram Pictures. CBS Studio Center (in
the Valley) was started out life in 1928 as Mack Sennett's studio,
and was also headquarters for Republic Studios.
To add to the confusion,
virtually all of the motion picture studios in Hollywood produce television
shows as well as movies. Paramount, for instance, makes "Fraiser";
Warner Bros. makes "Friends"; and Disney makes "Boy Meets
World," so most studios offer free tickets to attend the live
tapings of their TV shows.
