"Really fun tour on the sets of Warner Bros shows"

Warner Bros. Studio had a Hollywood tour which offered a glimpse of behind the scenes of the movies and production on sets. Our tour guide was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. The outdoor sets of some popular TV shows, indoor sets of shows Friends, Pretty Little Liars, Gilmore Girls, etc. and a souvenir shop. If you are a fan of Warner Bros.shows, you'll love the place.

Warner Bros. Studios, Burbank

Warner Bros. Studios, Burbank is a major filmmaking facility owned and run by Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. in Burbank, California. The 62-acre studio lot was built in 1926 by First National Pictures as they were expanding from only distributing films to producing them.

The financial success of The Jazz Singer & The Singing Fool enabled Warner Bros. to purchase a majority interest in First National in September 1928 and they began moving their productions into the Burbank lot. The First National studio, as it was then known, became the official home of Warner Bros.–First National Pictures. From 1929 to 1958, most Warner Bros. films bore the combined trademark "A Warner Bros.–First National Picture". Though Warner's Sunset Boulevard studios remained in active use during the 1930s both for motion picture filming and "phonograph recordings" a fire in December 1934 destroyed 15 acres of the studios in Burbank, forcing the company to put its Sunset Boulevard studio back into full use.

By 1937, Warner Bros. had all but closed the Sunset studio, making the Burbank lot their main headquarters — which it remains to this day. Eventually the First National company was dissolved and the site has often been referred to as simply Warner Bros. Studios since.

In a cost cutting move, Warner Bros. entered into a joint venture with Columbia Pictures in 1971 to create The Burbank Studios on the Warner lot. The joint venture lasted until 1989 when the partnership was dissolved and Columbia moved into the former Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer/Lorimar lot in Culver City and the studio lot in Burbank became the Warner Bros. Studio again.
