Today the hit NBC show Parenthood is back to filming around Echo Park, even though the show actually takes place in the San Francisco area.

This morning filming trucks and vehicles took up the entire street along the Logan Elementary School to film episode #407. The school kids probably got a few glimpses of the filming in action while playing at recess – something they are probably used to in Echo Park! Filming on Logan Street is supposed to go until 6:00 pm today.

Parenthood will also be filming at 1455 W Sunset Blvd. until 10:00 pm, but get your flaming margaritas somewhere else tonight – El Compadre will be closed for the filming.

Last February, the show filmed in front of The Echo and inside Origami Vinyl, adding in a few more hills and homes to the background for that “San Francisco” feel (see below).

The episode filmed earlier this year that was aired in February; shows the front of The Echo with some additional graphics added to the background. Screenshot via Hulu (click to view larger image).
