I just got home and ran to my computer to write this one up because I wanted to be sure to get the word out!! I had so much fun at the Time Warner Cable Studios!! And the party stops on February 1st! EEK!
OK!! Time Warner Cable took over 45,000 square feet in the Meat Packing District (where they found it … I have no idea) and transformed it into a TV fanatic’s DREAM come true (ahem – that’s ME). I’m talking Vikings, Game of Thrones, Sprout, ESPN and MORE… PAH-LEASE! I was practically levitating.
I had the chance to visit the experience this morning and took full advantage of each station. My group wasn’t very extroverted… so I basically was chosen to do all the special video shoots. HA! You know I wasn’t complaining.
Two moments particularly stood out for me from the tour. ONE being the above. Sitting on the ACTUAL THRONE from Game of Thrones. Are you kidding me? It felt right people… It felt real good. If there wasn’t a line of tour participants waiting to go next, I might have lingered there for an hour or three…
My other FAVORITE moment is shown in THIS VIDEO — you have to watch it! I crack up every time I do. We were able to get dressed up as Vikings and shoot a scene from the History Channel’s top rated show. Do you watch Vikings? I really enjoyed the first season — Bill did too. I JUMPED at the chance to do this. Threw my bag on the floor and ran right to the producer. ME! ME! ME! PS. That shield was hella-heavy. I’m standing with my friend April from Betty Confidential who was also on the tour with me this AM.
Seriously please watch the video — it is so funny. Or at least I think it is. 🙂
Find out more information and reserve your free tickets here!! You do not want to miss out on this opportunity! All the magic disappears on February 1st. I hope TWC thinks about making this a more permanent structure in NYC. We don’t need the throne — everything else can stay. It really was a great event and I KNOW that tourists from all over the world would appreciate being able to walk through the exhibits like I did.
One more thing!! On February 1st, Time Warner Cable Studios will host “Connect a Million Minds Family Day”. TWC customers and more than 300 students from the Boys and Girls Clubs in NYC will be invited to tour the studios to see how science, technology, engineering and math all play a part in television. Love this! To find out more information on this initiative, follow the conversation online at Twitter using hashtag #CAMMDAY and #TWCStudios.
Oh and SHH — don’t tell my children I met Chica. If they found out they would KILL me! 🙂 We are huge Sprout fans in this house.
