Have you seen 9JKL on Monday nights on CBS? If not you should!
Earlier this month, I headed to CBS Studios in Los Angeles, California to get the behind the scenes scoop to the new hit TV show 9JKL. I had the opportunity to meet with the talented cast and the creators, to get an up close look at the new show that is buzzing on CBS Monday nights.
This show is heartwarming, hilarious, and a great show to watch to start off your week!
Thank you CBS Studios for inviting me on set to 9JKL. All opinions are my own.
It was surreal to step foot on set to this show. It felt so much like a real home. Mark Feuerstein creator of the show, talked about how this set resembled his parent’s home and the details he incorporated to make this show come to life. Mark even placed real family photos of his family on set. He said he uses “real life” experiences to create these laugh out loud episodes.
Mark’s wife Dana Klein, is the co-creator of this brilliant show. Although she is behind the scenes, Mark mentioned she is a huge driving force behind this new sitcom.
Mark Feuerstein stars in 9JKL in a family comedy inspired by his real life. Josh Roberts is a new divorcé and actor between projects who moves home to New York to regroup, living in an apartment sandwiched between his doting, meddlesome parents on one side and his brother, sister-in-law and their new baby on the other. Josh’s well-intentioned mom, Judy, is so excited to have her beloved son home after his 12 years in Los Angeles that she bribes their doorman, Nick, to secretly call her every time Josh comes up the elevator so she can greet him in the hallway. Also thrilled is Josh’s larger-than-life father, Harry, an attorney with no personal boundaries who’s eager to help Josh land his next starring role using his Hollywood “connections.” Teasing Josh about his return home are his competitive brother, Andrew, a successful surgeon who, unlike Josh, doesn’t have a problem saying “no” to their interfering parents; Andrew’s Harvard-educated pediatrician wife, Eve; and 12-year-old neighbor Ian from 5A, who hangs out in the lobby. As Josh’s family literally comes at him from both sides, he realizes he desperately needs to establish some ground rules, because his loving family is always going to be right there for him. Always. Dana Klein, Mark Feuerstein, Aaron Kaplan, Wendi Trilling, Dana Honor and Pam Fryman are executive producers for Kapital Entertainment in association with CBS Television Studios. Fryman directed the pilot.
This show hit home because it was authentic and relatable. I love the humorous family dynamic and the drama that stirs up and makes this show so darn funny and entertaining…
It was such a treat to see my good friend Carla Renata on set. She will guest star in an upcoming episode. You can follow Carla on her blog The Curvy Film Critic.
