eyefocus, if you can get a photo of this and the 8 Simple Rules poster, it would be greatly appreciated:
THE WALT DISNEY COMPANY HOSTS HISTORIC UNVEILING
AT BURBANK STUDIO LOT
The Walt Disney Company today unveiled the first permanently installed posters ever displayed
on the Studio lot. The 20 X 29 ft. images of current hit ABC/Touchstone series “Alias,” “8 Simple Rules
for Dating My Teenage Daughter” and “My Wife and Kids,” and of the highly anticipated made-for-television version of the classic musical “Meredith Willson’s The Music Man,” were unveiled by Disney
Chairman and CEO Michael Eisner; Disney President & COO Robert A. Iger; Lloyd Braun, chairman, ABC Entertainment Television Group; Susan Lyne, president, ABC Entertainment; Stephen McPherson,
president, Touchstone Television, and The Honorable Mayor David Laurell of Burbank.
Also in attendance were ABC/Touchstone stars John Ritter and Katey Sagal (“8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter”), Victor Garber (“Alias” and “Meredith Willson’s The Music Man”), Tisha
Campbell-Martin (“My Wife and Kids”) and the talent who started it all, Mickey Mouse.
Three of the permanently installed posters are designed to highlight those shows and projects
that are actually filmed on the Disney lot. The fourth will be utilized to highlight upcoming projects on “The Wonderful World of Disney.”
“When Walt moved the company to the Burbank lot in 1940, he envisioned it as a home for the most talented and creative minds in our business. Today we celebrate this vision by honoring the ABC
Television Network, Touchstone Television and their recent achievements,” commented Mr. Eisner.
“Looking ahead, we will use this space to recognize and celebrate creativity, which will always be at
the heart of The Walt Disney Company.”
“For 50 years, ABC has been delivering some of the best broadcast entertainment available,” said Mr. Iger. “This fact -- combined with a long, rich partnership between ABC and Disney -- makes me
proud to see the accomplishments and hard work of so many people recognized in such a visible way.”
“This is a truly ‘larger-than-life’ tribute to the tremendous creativity and talent that is demonstrated on the Disney lot every day,” added Alex Wallau, president of the ABC Television Network. “There have been many great movies and shows produced on the Disney lot since 1940, but this is the first time that the Company has celebrated a project with this kind of display. These are fantastic symbols of the Company’s support of ABC and Touchstone.”
The four 20 X 29 ft. posters were installed on the sides of Stage 2 (which was recently inaugurated as the Julie Andrews Stage) and Stage 4, which can be viewed in part by the public from Riverside Drive and Buena Vista Street. Stage 2 is currently home to the production of “Pirates of the Caribbean,” a live-action film based on the popular Disney ride. “Alias” is shot on Stage 4.
The soundstages at The Walt Disney Studios on Buena Vista Street in Burbank, California, have been in continuous use since Walt Disney moved the company to this location in 1940. Built that same year, Stage 1 was first used for filming the live-action scenes for “Fantasia.” Beginning in the late 1940s, Walt Disney began producing live-action features and television programs, and the Studio lot was
subsequently expanded to include multiple sound stages and production facilities. Today the studios
house eight sound stages.
These posters promote some of ABC and Touchstone Television’s most successful new properties. The poster dedicated to “The Wonderful World of Disney,” a unique partnership that originated between Walt Disney himself and the ABC Television Network in 1954 and is today the highest-rated movie franchise on network television, will initially promote the upcoming ABC presentation of “Meredith Willson’s The Music Man,” starring Matthew Broderick, that will air on February 16, 2003. After that broadcast, the image will be changed to feature another upcoming
“Wonderful World of Disney” presentation. The other posters will continue to showcase three successful series that are currently shot on the lot: The critically acclaimed spy drama “Alias,” which stars Golden Globe winner Jennifer Garner; and two of the hottest comedies on television, “8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter,” which marks John Ritter and Katey Sagal’s return to sitcom television, and “My Wife and Kids,” the comedy starring Damon Wayans and Tisha Campbell-Martin which won the 2002 People’s Choice Award for Favorite New Television Comedy Series.
