Universal Studios Hollywood - Backlot

Home and Family Set

Location #1 - Above Falls Lake - Not accessible to trams

The original house built for 'Home & Family' live TV series shown on The Family Channel between 1996 and 1998 is still in existence at the top of the backlot.
The same house set was later used for ''The Christopher Lowell Show' for the Discovery Channel (1999 - 2004) and has only been used sporadically since then.
The final photo below shows the now overgrown signboard that featured in the opening credits to Home & Family every week, with the show's title. It's now plain green.
This area is not accessible to regular tour guests. The photos below were taken on a VIP Experience Tour.
