CBS Studio Center Tour

Project: Craftsman Bungalow, Episode 8, Part 2



Preparation for painting the exterior continues, as the crew sands, scrapes, grinds, and strips its way to a smooth surface before priming. Bob plays hooky and takes a tour of the nearby CBS Studio Center, the first of the big movie lots, which eventually gave Studio City its name. Bob even gets a private tour of the set of the series Grace Under Fire, and meets a few interesting characters along the way.
