Ever wonder what goes on behind the scenes of your favorite tv shows? Well, today I’m spilling the beans about my trip Behind the Scenes with ABC TV’s American Housewife. Check out all the details and photos of places you might recognize from the show!
Behind the Scenes with ABC TV’s American Housewife
Have you seen this hilarious show called American Housewife yet? It’s definitely a show I can completely relate to and totally laugh at knowing I just went through that yesterday with my family. While in LA last month for the Queen of Katwe Event I was able to visit the set of ABC TV’s American Housewife. They were shooting on location which took up the entire parking lot.
On Set with American Housewife
Do you recognize this from the show? Probably not, but the episode “Krampus Kate” was filmed in the auditorium of this church in LA. We waited here while the crew were setting up in the building next to us. If you can think you know which church this is in LA, drop the answer in the comments section!
Walking The Set of American Housewife
When we walked on set we were able to see the film crew with their huge set of cameras. It was amazing to see all of the technical work that goes behind each episode. The cast sat around a table and practiced their lines as makeup did their last run through each of the girls.
Katy Mixon Practicing Her Lines
Katy Mixon practiced her lines and gave us a quick wave while the girls chatted as the crew got ready to shoot. When we first entered the room all we saw were cameras, the cast. and Christmas Decorations all around.
This being the Christmas-themed episode we were super excited to see a sneak peek of what we were going to expect in the coming up weeks. Sadly everything here is super under wraps so we weren’t able to stay while they filmed.
UPDATE: I can now share more information about this hush-hush trip behind the scenes of ABC’s American House.
The Cast of American Housewife
It was fantastic meeting the stars of this hilarious show, they are so nice and welcoming. Notice who this is? It’s Mrs. Fitbit queen Leslie Bibb. Leslie Bibb plays Viv, the estranged filthy rich woman who wears 2 Fitbit’s. Little does Katie know that Viv is her new neighbor! Oh do these two have fun in American Housewife!
Katy Mixon from American Housewife
I was so excited to meet Katy Mixon in person, I’ve known her for her work in previous shows like Mike and Molly. I was able to have a quick chat with Kat Mixon where I shared how her show really resonates with me, especially the pilot episode (episode 1). I am that crazy mom of multiple kids who doesn’t have it all together and is usually flying by the seat of my pants.
During our quick chat she shared her thoughts on the show and she swears if you loved the first episode you will be in total love with the second one. She was so right! I was able to screen the episode titled “The Nap” last night and it’s hilarious!
Meeting Ali Wong and Carly Hughes
I was so excited to meet THE BFF’s, Katie’s ride of die 2nd breakfast crew. These two are best friend goals! Why you may ask? On one hand, you have the level-headed Angela who will give you the advice you need to power through any situation. And then on the other hand you have the “I rather ask for forgiveness later” Doris who can sometimes be a handful.
Either way these two helped Katie through many situations, including many self growth episodes. If ever I was going to have a 2nd breakfast, I hope this trio would invite me to join them.
Every Tuesday American Housewife airs at 8:30 pm EST, make sure you tune into tonight’s episode titled ” The Nap”. This episode is so relatable I couldn’t help but laugh at how the struggle she went through during this episode rung so true to my life.
Although she speaks from a stay-at-home mom’s standpoint I can still relate to the many struggles she faced when just trying to take her precious nap. Sometimes that’s all we need is a mom nap!
Don’t forget to keep watching as the Tuesday Comedy Night Lineup continues with some other amazing shows! Before American Housewife you can catch “The Middle” at 8 pm, with “The Real O’Neals” and “Fresh Off the Boat” following American Housewife.
