For the last few years I’ve had the opportunity to work from time on time on an excellent TV series, and fortunately have had several days on the show while Coccinelle’s been with me. The pictures in this post are from her initial visit to the soundstages where the show shoots most of its interior scenes.
Here she is at video village (the area where I sit along with the director, usually the cinematographer, often the writer, sometimes a producer) which has been set up right by where we'll be shooting the first scene of the day. On the left is a motor home which is actually a set for the show (that is, it, um “plays” the motor home/headquarters of one of the recurring characters):

Here we are on another stage; to the left are the backs of flats, the other sides sides of which are the inside "walls" of different various sets:
Here, the wall on the left is there to be seen through the window of an office set where it appears to be a the bottom floor of a building “next door”:

Also shooting at the same studio is the new show “Vegas” which is takes place during the early days and development of Las Vegas:
