SILVER LAKE — For the past two seasons the FX comedy/drama You’re the Worst frequently filmed inside a Silver Lake home designed by legendary architect Rudolph Schindler. The Modernist home with views of the Silver Lake Reservoir serves as the residence of one of the show’s main characters, Jimmy Shive-Overly, played by Chris Geere. The Silver Lake home also appears in the show’s third season. But there’s one difference. It’s a fake – a replica built inside an Atwater Village warehouse and soundstage where the new season was filmed, says the Hollywood Reporter.
Creator Stephen Falk, in a separate interview with the Los Feliz Ledger, said that the real Schindler home is an architectural jewel. But it was a challenge to film inside the home, the neighbors began complaining about frequent filming and then the reservoir was drained, which does not make for a very scenic view outside the home’s big picture windows. Falk told The Ledger:
“I’m fascinated with Schindler and when the location guy for the pilot walked me into the house, I immediately identified it because of its characteristics. I said ‘Oh my God, it’s a Schindler! It has the reservoir as a backdrop. We’re shooting here.’ The downside is it’s not very film friendly because it has tight corners and a cramped environment that’s not friendly for crew people, but it’s a beautiful house.”
