More on House and Greystone

Mayfield Psychiatric Hospital Set
A little over a month ago I wrote about a promo for the television series House and how it contained footage of the Greystone Kirkbride‘s interior. However, more than one person told me that there was no sign of the show filming inside the interior. I can now confirm they were correct since Fox released a video about building sets for the interior of their fictional Mayfield Psychiatric Hospital. You can watch the video at Better check it out soon because the video will probably be replaced eventually.

It’s amazing how much detail and work went into the show’s effort to reproduce the look of Greystone. I still don’t understand why they didn’t just use the hospital itself. Seems like they could have spiffed up a few areas for a lot less work than it took to build these sets.

    So basically, they have recreated the interior. That might not be too horrible to see if it’s authentic, right?

    Yeah, I’m impressed that they did such a thorough job even though I’m disappointed they didn’t use the real interior. It may not be 100% authentic, but I will definitely watch anyway.
