    Cupcake shop from “Castle”

      LOCATION A cupcake shop where a dead body pops up on a fifth-season episode of “Castle”. ADDRESS Paramount Studios 5555 Melrose Ave Hollywood, CA paramountstudiotour.com STORY & PHOTOS ABC’s dark but funny detective series “Castle”, starring Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic, is filmed mostly at Raleigh Studios in Hollywood, but sometimes crosses the street to film at Paramount when it needs a New York City street as a backdrop. (The show is set in NYC but filmed in Los Angeles.) Unfortunately, Raleigh does not offer tours to the public; however, Paramount does! It’s not the official home of “Castle”, but there will definitely be some NYC scenes you’ll recognize.

    These lovely people provide occasional content and photos for Live the Movies: Alana Elowitch “Hey there! I’m Lily, and I’m super pumped to be a part of this website. I’m from Maine, and currently a student in Florida pursuing degrees in Film, English, and Theatre. My love of television and movies sparked at the age of five when I had my first viewing of ‘Singin’ in the Rain’ – it was then I knew I had to be a part of this world of film. Luckily, my cousin Christina (incidentally the coolest person I know) introduced me to it in March of 2013, and inspired me to seek out filming locations during my…

    WHERE Dolby Theatre, Hollywood & Highland WHEN March 26, 2014 STORY & PHOTOS “Community” is a perennial favorite of the Paley Center, having been honored at PaleyFest for an unprecedented five years in a row! (For those keeping track, that’s every year they’ve been on the air.) I don’t think any other show carries that distinction. Go Human Beings!
