Recently, production of the CBS game show ‘Let’s Make a Deal’ moved from the lot at Sunset Bronson Studios in Hollywood to Raleigh Studios in Larchmont Village on Melrose between Van Ness and Bronson. The show – known for its audience of costumed extroverts – started taping at Raleigh last week. With three studio audiences looking for parking in the area every day that the show is taped, neighbors are quickly feeling a negative impact.

Let's Make a Deal SignRaleigh neighbors have requested relief from the people in charge at Raleigh Studios. Because studio members are taking up parking spots outside of the zone that Raleigh reserves for them, Raleigh neighbors are left without parking spots on taping days.

‘Let’s Make a Deal’ is in production most weeks now through October 23rd. Tape days are Wednesday – Saturday, when they work on three shows a day at 9:00AM, 11:30AM, and 1:30PM.

From the On Camera Audiences website that stocks audiences for Let’s Make a Deal:
