“RuPaul’s Drag Race”
and “Property Envy” produce full seasons on the historic Hollywood lot.

Hollywood— Hollywood Center Studios recently
provided shooting stages and other services to international entertainment
company World of Wonder for two television series, RuPaul’s Drag Race and Property
Envy.

Billed as “the ultimate in drag queen competitions,” RuPaul’s Drag Race shot its sixth season
for Logo on Hollywood Center Studios’ Stages 5 and 6. The show features
real-life drag queens competing in often outrageous challenges for the title of
America’s Next Drag Superstar, with RuPaul serving in dual (male and female)
roles.

At HCS, the show built several sets, including its principal
set featuring a runway and judges panel. Other sets included a dressing room
and a challenge arena. “We needed extra space for talent dressing room and for
our video village,” recalls World of Wonder Senior Production Manager Michelle
Palmer. “In both cases, Hollywood Center took out walls to accommodate us—that
was awesome.”
Property Envy is a
new talk show hosted by Stephen Collins and featuring property expert Jeff
Lewis, interior designer Mary McDonald and real estate guru Brandie Malay
discussing luxury real estate. It was shot on a contemporary living room set
built on Hollywood Center Studios’ 7000-square foot Stage 2 and took advantage
of one of the studios’ recently upgraded HD control rooms. Lighting and camera
equipment were also part of the package.
“The two shows couldn’t have been more different in terms of
their style, content and stage requirements,” Palmer says. “Hollywood Center
has stages of varying sizes and so they were able to provide us with spaces
that were just right for both shows.”
“We’ve wanted to work at Hollywood Center for a long time,”
Palmer adds. “They are close to our production offices, the shooting spaces
are  intimate and the atmosphere is
great—classic old Hollywood.”
The sixth season of RuPaul’s
Drag Race
debuts in early 2014 on Logo. Property
Envy
is airing now on Bravo.
