While in LA we took a tour of the Grey’s Anatomy set, and visited with a few of the cast members. It seems I have been missing out on this thing (Show) Grey’s Anatomy for quite some time. I know this long running ABC TV show has been in production, and has won plenty of awards. So what better way to get introduced to the show, than to take a tour of the Grey’s Anatomy set.
Recipient of the 2007 Golden Globe Award for Best Drama Television Series and nominated for multiple Emmys, including Outstanding Drama Series, “Grey’s Anatomy” is considered one of the great television shows of our time. The high-intensity medical drama, now beginning its tenth season, follows the personal and professional lives of a group of doctors at Seattle’s Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital.
First, Jessica Capshaw (Dr. Arizona Robbins) explains a little bit about the show and cast from outside the Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital front doors.
From there we make our way into the home of Drs. Derek Shepard & Meredith Grey. Now, this was the first time I have ever been on set of any type of filming set. I was amazed by the realistic value it has to a real home. But, with all the break-away walls and removable ceiling it felt so real to be on set.
Jessica walked us through what a typical day on set would look like, on the Grey’s Anatomy set. During our visit the team was on a break, but normally crew or cast would lounge in the home or hospital section.
I really did get a good feel of how the show runs and get a grasp of the importance of each little piece. Like in the hospital division of the set, everything had a place and a purpose.
The nurses station was pretty cool, and seemed like I was really in a children ER.
