History[edit] Mack Sennett, a silent film producer and director, came to the San Fernando Valley and opened his new movie studio at this location (at what is now Ventura Boulevard and Radford Avenue) in May 1928. He previously operated a smaller studio on Glendale Boulevard in Echo Park (then called Edendale) where he produced films featuring the Keystone Kops, Charlie Chaplin, Mabel Normand, Buster Keaton, W.C. Fields, and Fatty Arbuckle. After creating the Studio City lot, Sennett in five years was forced to file bankruptcy and the studio lot was sold off to another film company, Mascot Pictures. Mascot, which specialized in serials, renamed the studio after itself. By 1935, another film company, Monogram Pictures, along with Mascot and Consolidated Film Corporation merged to form Republic Pictures
Republic Pictures
Corporation. The studio lot was renamed Republic Studios. The new studio specialized in B-movies, including many Westerns
Westerns
starring the likes of Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, and John Wayne, all of whom got their first breaks with Republic. In the 1950s, Republic leased studio space to Revue Productions, which filmed many early television series on the lot (including early episodes of Leave It To Beaver) before Revue's owner, MCA acquired Universal Pictures
Universal Pictures
and moved Revue's television production to Universal City. Also, Four Star Productions leased the lot for many of its series like The Rifleman, Dick Powell's Zane Grey Theater, and The Big Valley. Republic Pictures
Republic Pictures
ceased production in 1958 and Victor M. Carter became its president in 1959. Carter built Republic into a diversified business with foci outside of the television and film business, and so began leasing its lot to CBS. In 1963, CBS
CBS
Television became the primary lessee of the lot. Almost immediately after leasing the Republic Pictures
Republic Pictures
lot, CBS
CBS
began to place their network-produced filmed shows there, including Gunsmoke, My Three Sons, and Gilligan's Island. ( The Wild Wild West
The Wild Wild West
followed in 1965). The Gilligan's Island lagoon was located at the northwestern edge of the lot; it was paved over in the mid-1990s to make room for a new parking structure. While under lease, the facility was renamed the CBS
CBS
Studio Center. The network finally purchased the 70-acre lot outright from Republic in February 1967, for $9.5 million. That same month, Republic also sold off its film library. CBS
CBS
built new sound stages, office buildings, and technical facilities. To make up for these investments, CBS
CBS
began to rent out its studio lot for independent producers, and the newly created MTM Enterprises
MTM Enterprises
(headed by actress Mary Tyler Moore
Mary Tyler Moore
and her then-husband, Grant Tinker) became the Studio Center's primary tenant, beginning in 1970. Moore's memorable sitcom, The Mary Tyler Moore
Mary Tyler Moore
Show, began filming here in 1970, along with its spinoffs, Rhoda, Phyllis, and Lou Grant. In July 1982, CBS
CBS
formed a partnership with 20th Century Fox
20th Century Fox
to share ownership of the Studio Center, thus once again renaming, this time as CBS/Fox Studios. However, that relationship was short-lived as Fox sold its interest of the Studio Center to MTM, and it became CBS-MTM Studios. In March 1992, the studio once again became CBS
CBS
Studio Center, when MTM (which was later bought by 20th Century Fox's parent company, News Corporation) sold back its interest in the studio lot to CBS. From 1991 to 1996, American Gladiators
American Gladiators
was videotaped at CBS
CBS
Studio Center. The original "Gladiator Arena" (Stage 3) remains preserved in its original form in its original location, with tours and group events available. Today, the studio is one of the most active in the city for producing sitcoms. It is also the base for "Semester in L.A.", a six-week course by Columbia College Chicago.[1] Since 2007, the Studio Center serves as the home to CBS's Los Angeles flagship TV station, KCBS-TV, along with sister station KCAL-TV, as they vacated Columbia Square to move into a newly built, digitally-enhanced office and studio facility located where the house for the CBS
CBS
reality series, Big Brother, once stood. It enables the stations to broadcast their local news in High Definition. The CBS Studio City Broadcast Center also houses the Los Angeles

bureau of CBS News, which is shared with the KCBS/KCAL local newsroom; on August 3, 2011, Scott Pelley
