One thing that really gets me excited is when Disney allows bloggers to go behind-the-scenes with set visits and more! That’s exactly what I did when I visited the tv set of The Middle while out in Los Angeles! Its a VERY popular tv show on ABC and they are heading into their 8th season, wow! I have seen it a few times but it was really cool to meet some of the actors and hang out in the wardrobe department!
Here I am in a trailer full of clothes from The Middle tv show! Lots of 80’s pastels, plaids and prints, it was so cool!
Costume Designer Julia showed us around and how everything is very well organized! I want her to come to my house and organize my closet, mine is a mess geesh! Tags and photos are used for different scenes from the show etc.

The house was very fun to see and looked like a real lived in home! It reminded me of how most Americans live. My house can be clean then somewhat messy but hey, we all live busy lives lol. I got to meet Patricia Heaton (who plays Frankie), Neil Flynn (who plays Mike) and last but not least, Atticus Shaffer (who plays Brick). All very friendly ofcourse.

THE MIDDLE – ABC TV show: About “The Middle” (premieres Tuesday, October 11 at 8/7c): Two-time Emmy-winner Patricia Heaton stars in this warm and witty single-camera comedy about raising a family and lowering your expectations. Middle-aged, middle class and living in the middle of the country in Orson, Indiana, Frankie Heck is a harried wife and mother of three who uses her wry wit and sense of humor to get her family through each day intact. Frankie works as a dental assistant, and her unflappable husband, Mike, is manager at the local quarry and her sardonic partner in the daily grind that is raising their average – yes, most definitely average – family.
On the season premiere episode that airs tonight, “The Core Group,” Frankie and Mike are excited to meet April (Greer Grammer) – the love of Axl’s life – but discover that love may indeed be blind when April reveals a quirky personality trait. Meanwhile, after getting bit by the acting bug while working at Dollywood over the summer, Sue wants to change her major to theater, and Brick is starting high school and making it his mission to try for a fresh start and not be considered one of the weird kids.
