I was invited by Disney to attend the #QueenOfKatwe and #ABCTVEvent Event. Although all of my expenses were paid, all opinions are my own.
While in Los Angeles for the #QueenOfKatweEvent, we were invited on set of The Real O’Neals as they geared up for Season 2. Last year I was given the opportunity to interview and chat with a few of the characters as well as the creators/writers/directors. This time, though, we were able to walk the set and chat with a few people. It is always such a cool experience to see the set of a show that you watch. Tonight, an episode of The Real O’Neals premieres in Season 2 and I’m excited to share the details below!
Being on the set of The Real O’Neals was a lot of fun! We were able to walk around, chat with Bebe Wood “Shannon,” Matt Shively “Jimmy” and David Windsor, one of the writers. It was so neat to see the “behind the scenes” workings and learn the logistics of it all. We learned that the team is setting up for the next episode as the current one is being filmed and then is able to tear them down and set up for the next very quickly. I know it takes a dedicated team and a vision for each of these episodes and sets to be put together!
Stay tuned to this season to find out more about the picture above ;).
Before we headed off set and let the three of them get back to work, we grabbed a group shot in the living room, which was decorated for Christmas! In fact, the entire house was decorated and done so beautifully!
