For those of you who don't live in the greater Los Angeles area, this is what it looks like when a television series is filmed in the house across the street from you.
Trucks, dumpsters, portable dressing rooms, catering supplies, lights, cameras, action, and (if you're lucky) stars line the streets.
Signs are placed along the street ahead of time to warn residents of the upcoming shooting.
And neighbors (like me, AKA Mrs. Kravitz) try to look nonchalant as they slyly snap photographs of the cast and crew. I'm pretty sure the girl standing in the gray track suit holding the white bag is Katie Leclerc.
The name of this TV series is Switched at Birth, starring Leah Thompson, and airs on ABC Family. I've been recording it on my DVR, but I haven't really watched it. I just fast forward through it in hopes of seeing my street and my neighbors house. The story takes place in Kansas City.
You may recall the last time a show was filmed on my street. It was a "reality" show that takes place in Louisiana. Yep. This isn't Louisiana.
