Producers have been busy building new exterior sets at its production base at Nunawading (formerly Global TV, formerly Channel TEN studios).
Not content with its famous exterior Lassiters site, the soap has been quietly doubling new exteriors for its Ramsay Street houses to allow for more ‘backyard’ shooting of its cul-de-sac homes. But this time on its own turf, literally.
It seems there’s only one house with pool access at Pin Oak Court, the street that has been its home for over 25 years, and it’s looking a little tired.
By building their own sets, producers will have a lot more scope to write and shoot backyard scenes, complete with a pool.
Work on the site, situated adjacent to the Nunawading facility, will continue into the new year.
The show returns to ELEVEN on January 7th.
