New Beginnings: 'The Price is Right' Relocates to Haven Studios After Five Decades at Television City
MJB Memorabilia brings you the latest news from the world of television and entertainment. After five decades at the iconic Television City in Los Angeles, the long-running CBS game show 'The Price is Right' is set to relocate to Haven Studios in Glendale, California. In this blog post, we explore the reasons behind the move, the impact on other productions at Television City, and what this relocation means for the future of 'The Price is Right.'
A Major Renovation Forces Relocation:
The relocation of 'The Price is Right' comes as a result of an upcoming $1.25 billion renovation at Television City. The extensive refurbishment project has necessitated that the show leave its home of five decades, Studio 33, which was named after former host Bob Barker. The move is scheduled to take place later this summer, as the show begins production on its 52nd season.
Fremantle COO Suzanne Lopez shared in a statement, "While we bid a fond farewell to this cultural landmark, we are excited to say that we will be moving into a brand-new, state-of-the-art facility at Haven Studios. We can't wait to have our fans 'Come On Down' to this new facility when we begin production on the next season this summer."
Impact on Other Television City Productions:
The renovation at Television City will affect more than just 'The Price is Right.' Other notable productions housed at the studio complex include CBS' 'The Late Late Show with James Corden,' 'The Young and the Restless,' 'Dancing with the Stars,' 'American Idol,' and 'Real Time with Bill Maher.' These shows are reportedly in the process of "solidifying moving arrangements," though it remains unclear if they will also relocate to Haven Studios.
A New Chapter for 'The Price is Right':
The move to Haven Studios, a new facility in which Fremantle is an investor with a long-term lease, marks a new chapter for 'The Price is Right.' As the show transitions to a state-of-the-art facility, fans and memorabilia collectors alike will be eager to see how this iconic game show adapts and continues to entertain audiences in its new home.
MJB Memorabilia recognizes the significance of 'The Price is Right' relocating to Haven Studios after 50 years at Television City. As the show embarks on this new chapter, fans and collectors can look forward to more exciting moments and cherished memories. Though the show's longtime home will be missed, its relocation to a new, state-of-the-art facility ensures that 'The Price is Right' will continue to captivate and entertain audiences for years to come.
