Behind the scenes black-ish

Posted on: by Kate
Disclosure: I attended a press trip sponsored by Disney and ABC. All expenses were paid but opinions are my own.

Blackish is one of our favorite TV shows of all time.  Here are several photos from a set visit during the first season of the show.  Check out Dre’s closet, Jack and Diane’s room, and even the Blackish kitchen.  TV sets are so interesting and we love seeing all the details that make TV family homes look authentic.  Blackish is on ABC TV – we watch it on Hulu! abc tv lot

I shared earlier about how I was able to interview the creator and cast of ABC’s new hit show –  black-ish.  What I didn’t mention was I was also able to spend some time on the actual set where they film black-ish! We were able to tour the Blackish House and it is as beautiful in person as it is on TV! I love behind the scenes on anything to do with TV and movies, but especially shows I actually watch!  black-ish is one of my new favorite shows so I was super excited!  I’m thrilled I get to take you Behind the scenes : black-ish!

I was so excited as we jumped off the bus onto the ABC lot……


You guys, I love my house, but I wanted to move into the Blackish House!

It was really interesting to see the wide hallways, open ceilings, and huge lights that are of course for filming but you just don’t see them on the other side of the TV screen.



We bought a house last year that is time warped in 1984 when it was built.  Someday I would like to redo the kitchen. I honestly haven’t really given it much thought because we aren’t planning on doing it until we can pay for it cash and that is going to be a ways down the road.  But I decided while walking through the set that whenever that day comes a replica of the black-ish kitchen will do just fine.


Here I am with my friend Dawn who blogs at I am a Mommy Nerd just hanging out on a stairway to nowhere on the Blackish set.


Where the magic happens….. the master bedroom on the set of Blackish!

The kid’s room are seriously so cute and I loved checking out all the details.

Jack & Diane’s room really puts our boy & girl ‘twins’ room to shame…..

Thank you for letting us share pictures with our audiences who are also big fans of the show!

Until Next Time ~ Kate

    Thank you AJ – we LOVE our house so much but we hope someday down the road we can update the kitchen – I think the TV one is lovely but of course nothing we could ever really afford 😉 Maybe some version of it!

    I fell in love with the bed the first time I saw it on the show! I wish I could find one just like it. Thanks for responding!
