Legends House to start filming this week
Feb 2, 2012 - by Steve Gerweck
WWE will begin filming the Legends House reality show for their upcoming WWE Network this week as eight WWE Legends will enter a 2-acre mansion in the neighborhood of the Tamarisk Country Club this week in Rancho Mirage, California. Daniel Watson, General Manager of the McLean Co. Rentals, which manages the property for its owners, said that production crew are expected to stay at the house through March 31. Watson acknowledged that his company was hesitant about asking the owners of the house -which belonged to the late comic actor Harpo Marx – about the possibility of renting it to WWE for the show. “There was a little hesitancy on our part when we asked the owners of the home because of the wrestling tie, but everyone has been very supportive and excited to see this show happen here,” Watson said. Kelly McLean, Vice President of McLean Co. Rentals, gave The Desert Sun newspaper a first look at the property which consists of eight rooms, six in the main house and two in the casita, and features a pool, Jacuzzi, and volleyball and tennis courts. It was built in 1954.
