What's it like behind-the-scenes of some of your FAVORITE Fox shows?  Kevin McCarthy can tell you!  We sent him out to LA to meet and greet some very familiar faces.  Here's a little of what he's seen and heard:

LA is incredible! I'm on the set of the new Fox show, Gang Related! I just interviewed the lead star, Ramon Rodriguez. So surreal to be on a live set while they are filming the actual show! You can hear them yelling “action!” They are bringing over the actors in between their scenes.

Zooey Deschanel was amazing.  We talked a lot about New Girl and the big Super Bowl episode that will feature Prince!

Lamorne Morris, who plays Winston on "New Girl”, is now following me on Twitter.  How cool is that?  You can follow me too - @KevinMcCarthyTV!  Follow Lamorne too (@LamorneMorris). When we air his interview on FOX 5 News Morning he’ll tweet out our LIVE STREAM link so all of his 100,000 fans can watch his interview!
 
I also had a hilarious interview with Andy Samberg, who had just won the Golden Globe for his role on Brooklyn Nine Nine! The next day he had to be on set at 6 a.m. to film a few new segments for the show.  He said he was “wildly hung-over” when shooting the scenes and viewers might be able to tell when the episode called The Apartment airs.   He gave me a clue as to what scene it is so our viewers can look out for it when the episode airs. If you follow me on Twitter, I’ll tell you what to look for when that episode airs.  

The American Idol judges were awesome! I asked them a question about the contestants on the show being star struck when they meet the judges. Then asked them which person would they would be star truck to sing in front of?  You could tell they had never been asked that question before because they took a while to answer the question…laughing the entire time! Harry Connick, Jr. said Frank Sinatra! He also gave Holly Morris (@HollyLiveFox5DC) a shout out because she loves him!

Keifer Sutherland was incredible as well! We talked a lot about how they will make 24 a 12-episode show instead of 24. He also told me about how they make the gun scenes look so realistic. They start shooting the show in a few days! Mary Lynn Rajskub (@rajskub) who plays Chloe on the show took a cool picture with me.
 
As if my trip couldn’t get any better…I went to the Fox party last night and the "Enlisted" guys were there! They couldn't stop talking about how much fun they had on FOX 5 News Morning last week! I got the cast to record a hilarious "Ask Allison" segment which you’ll see on an upcoming segment of “Ask Allison” on FOX 5 News Morning.

This has been an incredible experience! I'm excited to come back and share the interviews with all of you!
