Look Who's Been Filming in South Pas

A roundup of recent productions that shot in South Pasadena.

Friends veteran David Schwimmer is behind the camera for a sitcom that recently shot in South Pasadena.

"Family Guide,'' a single-camera sitcom centers on Henry, a son (played by Eli Baker) who idolizes his blind father (JK Simmons) and enjoys his mom’s (Parker Posey) newfound adolescence after his parents split, according to TVLine.com. The production shot scenes in town from March 18-21.

The political thriller TV series "Scandal'' returned to the City of Trees on March 22 and shot scenes in the 600 block of Magnolia Street and the 800 block of Mission Street. "Scandal'' stars Kerry Washington. 

Lastly, producers used the 1400 block of Garfield Avenue and the 1000 block of Sycamore Avenue as a back drop for a Tide commercial.

Today, Arroyo Drive was the scene for a Volvo commercial. It is amazing to me how many people and support trucks are needed for a simple commercial! Most don't do anything but stand around and visit the on site catering truck. It does benefit local police and fire personnel who supplement their salaries by working security at the filming locations, as well as residents who are compensated for use of their properties. South Pas has truly become the commercial filming capital of the nation.

Well, someone was filming from 7am-9pm on Via Del Rey close to Monterey Hills Elementary because the trucks took up all the street parking that morning, which was very annoying for school dropoff.

I saw that too and thought the same thing! Quite a huge undertaking. I see film crews at that mid-century modern home all the time.

Hold on...when is the last time a full length film starring Meryl Streep. Julia Roberts, directed by George Clooney was filmed in so Cal ? A film taken from a play written by a Tulsa native? 'August, Osage County" was recently filmed in Osage and Washington County OKla. Eat your hearts out....When the Okies left Okla for California during the dust bowl; it raised the IQ level in both states.
