The South Bank Show Originals - The London Studios - Netflix

The London Studios (also known as The South Bank Studios, The London Television Centre, ITV Towers and Kent House) in Waterloo, Central London was a television studio complex owned by ITV plc and originally built for London Weekend Television. The studios were located in Central London and were situated on the South Bank next to The IBM Building and the Royal National Theatre. The building was set on 2.5 acres of land and was 24 floors high. The London Studios closed on 30 April 2018. The facilities were the main studios for ITV, along with a number of production companies including ITV Studios and Shiver based in Kent House tower, while the studios were home to many entertainment, game and daytime shows. These include Good Morning Britain, The Graham Norton Show, Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway and The Jonathan Ross Show. The studios were also used for other programmes from various other channels including BBC and Channel 4. ITV Creative who promote programmes on the ITV network were also based at the London Studios. On 21 February 2017, it was announced that ITV would be closing the site in mid-2018 for a 5 years for large-scale redevelopment and that the new South Bank complex would result in the loss of most of the studios space, and the majority of the Studio space will be rented out of Studioworks in Whitecity, London, which is owned by the BBC. There will only be three studios in the new complex for the daytime ITV shows such as Good Morning Britain, This Morning and Loose Women when they return from Television Centre.

On the east side of the site, there is a neighbouring building called Gabriel's Wharf. Previously belonging to Younger's Brewery, this three-storey building was added later to the site as a scenery store. When This Morning moved from Liverpool, the 3,000 square feet (280 m2) studio 8 was converted from the riverside end of the first storey.
