Wow, a massive Hollywood story just hit a few minutes ago: Warner Bros. is buying the former NBC lot (now known as The Burbank Studios), and also buying two large skyscrapers in Burbank designed by Frank Gehry. And they're selling the Warner Bros. Ranch property on Riverside Drive, all as part of a $1 billion real estate deal. The story is not linkable yet, but here's the pertinent facts from the LA TIMES... WARNER BROS. LAND DEAL IS BLOCKBUSTER This will once again change the face of the Hollywood Studios, following WB Records moving downtown, away from their classic wood building on 3000 Warner Blvd. in Burbank. The WB Ranch was home to many famous exterior sets used in Columbia & Screen Gems TV series from the 1960s, including the famous Bewitched house, the Partridge Family house, and the "Friends" fountain, among many others. One assumes the property will remain intact, since it's still frequently used for commercials, TV, feature films, plus there's production & office space at the facility.
