Recently we roamed Warner Bros.' Burbank backlot on one of the rare, rainy days in L.A. when film and TV crews head inside to cover sets so as not to lose a valuable day's work. The lot's streets, normally bustling with energy, were quiet, except for the sound of the pouring rain hitting the pavement and streams of water rushing into drains. It also became clear that an L.A. rainstorm washes away the artifice of the backlot and suddenly transforms the streets into real but lonely places. Here are our shots from a rainy day at the studio, along with some movies and TV shows that created rain on the famous backlot.
