Aw, poor Charlie and Cocobop; they have no idea what's in store...all hell will be breaking loose in a matter of days. Law & Order is coming back to the CrazyStable! Yes, our old friends from NBC, who blew things up here back in 2005, are returning to shoot a scene for a new episode next week!
This blog made its debut, in fact, with the transformation of the house into a mad bomber's workshop for this episode of the show. The location scouts chose us because the script called for "a dilapidated house." This time, they're looking for something more prosaic--just an "exurban house" in Plattsburg, upstate. Apparently our countrified kitchen will do nicely, although they said they'd "thin out" our tchotchkes a little.
The crew is as nice as ever and the three-day shoot will be remunerative enough to permit a trip over the summer to visit Beloved Cousins in the Rockies. Plus, we get to hear real directors say "Action" and "Cut!" right inside our house...again! Yesterday, Child emerged from the bathroom to find a dozen crew members swarming over our living quarters with measuring tapes and digital cameras, saying things like, "Yeah, I'd do it all with the SteadiCam." She has learned to take that sort of thing in stride.
More delicious details to come.
