This week, the CBS sitcom "The Class" is letting fans behind the scenes in a very cool way. They're filming their table read and run-through — usually reserved only for the cast and crew — and putting them online for all to see.
The table read, which is when the cast and writers go through the script for the first time, was filmed on Monday, and the run-through will be Webcast live today starting at 4 p.m. Eastern, 1 p.m. Pacific. You can get to both videos through the show's official site.
As far as I know, this is the first time a TV show has tried this, and there are a few bugs — a big one being that the video software CBS is using doesn't work on Macs. But I love the idea and would like to see some other shows try it, so
How fun would it be to see how an episode of, say, "The Office" changes from the time the script is written to the moment the show makes it on the air? A lot of shows are too protective of their secrets to ever try this — "Grey's Anatomy" comes to mind — but I'd love to see another show be bold enough to let its audience behind the curtain a little early.
