Melissa & Joey Behind the Scenes Set Visit

If you watched Blossom in the early 90’s I am sure you are a fan of Joey Lawrence. I met him and his co-star Melissa Joan Hart, who I am sure you recognize from Clarissa Explains It All or Sabrina, the Teenage Witch, on the set of Melissa & Joey during my press trip to LA. We had the opportunity to check out all the behind-the-scenes action while they rehearsed and even interviewed Joey and Melissa! I’ll be posting my interviews with them next week so be sure to check those out!

Melissa & Joey

If you aren’t familiar with the show, it’s a half-hour comedy on ABC FamilyMelissa & Joey is about Mel Burke (Melissa Joan Hart) who is now a local politician. She’s a grown up former wild child of a political family. When her sister ends up in prison and her brother-in-law flees after a scandal hits, Mel must take responsibility for her niece, Lennox Scanlon (Taylor Spreitler) and nephew, Ryder Scanlon (Nick Robinson). The fun really starts when help comes in the unlikely form of Joe Longo (Joey Lawrence), who moves in and becomes the family’s manny.

Here we are in the audience viewing area interviewing Melissa Joan Hart:

As we walked through the lot to the Melissa & Joey set, we actually walked through the old Seinfeld New York City set that is now used for Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

It looks like an actual city street in the middle of the ABC lots. So neat to see it in person because I absolutely love Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

It’s so fascinating visiting a set. You actually see the decorated half-rooms with cameras, crew, cast and the audience viewing area. We actually got to watch the cast rehearse while we were in the audience viewing area. It was a scene with Melissa, Lennox and Joey. Joey actually sang while we were on set. He has such a great voice!

We were even able to walk around the set. The home is decorated so beautifully! It’s like you are in an actual home. Every detail is amazing! You have to be careful because moving one tiny object and throw off the whole set.

Here’s more great pictures I took while on set:

The kitchen is absolutely gorgeous! I am in love with that cabinet paint color! Just like a real home.
