My Fun Single Parents Set Visit Experience & Tour with The Cast and Crew #SingleParents #ABCTVEvent

Just because you’re single, doesn’t mean you’re alone. This is the overarching message the new comedy show, Single Parents on ABC wants to send out. It’s a funny take on parenthood from the single perspective (both single moms and dads).

Yesterday, I shared that we got to tour the set of The Rookie while in LA for the Ralph Breaks The Internet Event. But we also got to tour the set of Single Parents and we had a blast. You never know what will happen once you get on set – who will be there, what you’ll get to see, etc. But we lucked out and got to squeeze in two fun and fabulous set tours.

So today, I’m sharing some behind-the-scenes photos of our tour and giving you the scoop on tonight’s episode!

Hanging out at Hilltop Elementary with the cast of Single Parents.

Calling All (Single) Parents

This hilarious comedy follows a group of single parents as they lean on each other to help raise their 7-year-old kids and maintain some kind of personal lives outside of parenthood. The series begins when the group meets Will (played byTaran Killam), a 30-something guy who’s been so focused on raising his daughter that he’s lost sight of who he is as a man.

When the other single parents see just how far down the rabbit hole of PTA, parenting and princesses Will has gone, they band together to get him out in the world and make him realize that being a great parent doesn’t mean sacrificing everything about your own identity. This message should sound familiar as it’s what I’ve preached since launching Moms ‘N Charge in 2012!

We had so much fun chatting it up with Jake Choi (AKA Miggy) as he gave us a tour on the set of Single Parents.

It’s always fun when you can meet and chat with the actors and producers of a show. You get to see them up close and personal, and it makes watching the shows that much more fun.

Jason and Jake were such fun tour guides. They showed us around all of the different “houses” for the cast members and gave us a little insight into why/how decor was chosen.

Jason was explaining to us the details: and how they wanted to make sure even the living spaces were authentic. That they looked like a single parent lived in the space.

Because, why wouldn’t there be legos on the dining table? lol

One of my favorite details was seeing this Hilltop Elementary school calendar on the fridge.

And of course: what parents’ fridge doesn’t look like this?

Jason explaining how they had to build each set close together, and showing us around Hilltop Elementary.

This wall is totally the perfect backdrop for a blogger 😆

There’s something about being in a kid’s classroom that brings back all the memories!

They shared that during the pilot tapings, they used a local elementary school because they didn’t have a set yet. So they had to recreate the same room (look, feel, details) on their new Elementary school on the set.

They asked me to fill in for the role of Miss Adams, but sadly I had to decline 😊

 

Because Miggy’s love for shoes is real LOL

 

And that means the baby’s is too!

Oh heeeyyy Jack!
