Episodes Season 3 Filming Locations

Two weeks of series 2 was filmed in Los Angeles, and this time half of series 3 was shot in Britain. Speaking to the BBC, star Matt LeBlanc was asked: What does that add to the show?

He replied: “I think it enables us to open up the world of the show. As much as I like shooting in London – and I love London – it doesn’t look like Los Angeles at all. So it’s very tricky. In the first series we had to do so many special effects in the show. Matt’s house in Malibu was in the woods north of London. The whole house was wrapped in a 30ft high green cloth so it could be made to look like California in post-production. And I thought this is insane. When they were done, it did look like it was on the beach in Malibu. So it’s doable. But if you are going to spend that money on special effects, you could spend it on filming in LA.”

Produced by Hat Trick Productions and created by David Crane and Jeffrey Klarik, Episodes follows British husband-and-wife comedy writers, Sean and Beverly Lincoln, who move to LA to remake their hit UK television series ‘Lyman’s Boys’.
