RADFORD CBS STUDIO
in Studio City, CA
1928 this was the home of Keystone Studios and Mack Sennett's Keystone
Kops. The studio later came under ownership of Republic Studios where Gene
Autry and Roy Rogers galloped their trusty steeds to rescue "damsels
in distress" and to "save the town."
Starting in the '60s, the studio's sound
stages became home to such diverse television series as "Gunsmoke"
and "Gilligan's Island." MTM, Mary Tyler Moore's production company,
used the stages to tape the predicaments of "Rhoda" and the antics
at "WKRP in Cincinnati."
the '90s, comedy classic, "Seinfeld" called stage 9 home.
Today there are 18 sound stages and three
permanent outdoor sets: New York Street (think "Seinfeld"), Central
Park, and Residential Street. Currently, "Grounded For Life"
is one of the shows taped here.
