The sun was out and so were the stars at CBS’s 2017 Summer Soirée on Tuesday, August 1st. Gold Derby was on hand along with dozens of TCA reporters and critics at the event, which took place at CBS Studio Center in Studio City, California.
The party was held on the New York Street set of the studio’s backlot, the place where exteriors were shot for “Seinfeld” decades ago. Celebrities, producers, and the press braved the sweltering heat to dine on a variety of dishes from different food stands, including poke bowls, gyros, mini hamburger sliders, funnel cakes, and Asian noodles. Plus, lots of free alcohol.
