If you’re one of the few people, like me, who have been following ABC’s new series GCB, you know the fictional Hillside Park Church plays an integral role in the series.
The church isn’t just the ladies’ place of worship – it’s their office, the heart of their social circle, and, often, the one place spurring on their friendly competition.
Though the show is set in Dallas, it was primarily filmed in Los Angeles so the exteriors of the Hillside Park Church are all actually filmed at the All Saints Episcopal Church, located at 132 North Euclid Avenue in Pasadena, CA.
The interiors of the church are filmed on a soundstage in Los Angeles. The set designers visited dozens of churches to create a believable house of worship with 42 faux-stained plexiglass windows and seating for 120. The church was painted and aged to make it look more than 40 years old.
