Catch the David Makes Man Season 2 Premiere
After two years of anticipation, the Peabody Award-winning drama David Makes Man returns to OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network) for Season 2 on Tuesday, June 22 at 9:00pm EST.
The Warner Bros. TV series was primarily filmed in Stages 19, 20 and 25 from October 2020 to March 2021. The Production was headquartered in the Producers Building (B22A) located adjacent to the Soundstages. In addition, several iconic Universal locations were used including the Woody Woodpecker’s Nuthouse Coaster, Lombard’s Seafood Grille, and Schwab’s Pharmacy.

Due to the production's unique access to our hotels, Loews Portofino Bay Hotel, Loews Sapphire Falls Resort, and Universal's Aventura Hotel were also focal filming locations. USFPG Sr. Production Manager, Jackie Maness Jr., was responsible for the production logistics and management of this high-profile series.

In Case You Missed It
USFPG recently conducted an in-depth video interview with Producer Wayne Morris on the set for Season 2 of Warner Bros. Television's critically acclaimed series "David Makes Man," which made its home on the backlot at Universal Studios Florida.
