The TMZ office in Los Angeles is unique in the way that the celebrity gossip website’s work space also functions as a TV studio for the show.
TMZ on TV, which airs mainly on Fox-owned stations, features “in-studio” segments that are taped during a morning staff pitch meeting — led by the site’s founder and show’s executive producer, Harvey Levin —
at TMZ’s headquarters.
TMZ is an insider term (“thirty-mile zone” or studio zone), referring to the movie studio area of downtown Hollywood.
San Fransisco-based Rapt Studio recently refurbished TMZ’s very public workspace — see what it’s like to work in the fast lane.
San Fransisco-based Rapt Studio designed the real life work place/TV studio in downtown Los Angeles. The celebrity-inspired workspace is built around a 9,000-square-foot newsroom, connecting brand and culture to its environment.
The words 'Thirty Mile Zone' are printed on the wall because that is what 'TMZ' stands for. It's a reference to the historic 'studio zone' within a 30-mile radius in Los Angeles.
