Where ARE we? Well, right here, of course. But I guess all of TV land doesn’t follow our blog. So the kind folks at House Hunters offered to have us back on national television. We said, “Yes!” and then promptly made a bunch of updates in the fall (like making the courtyard come to life.)
This round of taping we spent one really easy day with the same producer (Hi Darcy!), same video guy (Hi Kevin!) and a super nice, new sound guy. Because our segment is only part of a half hour show and the focus is squarely on what we’ve done around this place, we spent more time off camera than on. That was fine by me! Less pressure, only one wardrobe change and potentially less time where my face literally fills the screen. (Yikes!)
Anyways, I digress. The whole point of popping in here is to tell you that we have an air date: March 9th at 9 pm CST! So set your DVR and grab your favorite snack, because the firehouse is coming to the big… err little screen! If you’re a regular reader you won’t be surprised by any of the changes, but we always hear that it’s easier to grasp the firehouse once you’ve seen it in person. So this is a great way to invite all our virtual friends into our humble a(fire)bode.
Oh, and because I’m sure everyone wants to know whether Mojo will make an appearance, she did get in on some of the taping. But mostly she spent her time like this (because being a TV star is hard, guys):
Seriously, she slept on her bed in the studio (behind the couch you see in the middle picture) for most of our interview. Occasionally we would have to stop shooting if she sat up because you could see see her over our shoulder. What I wouldn’t give for footage of some of the bloopers from this whole experience…
