It's a Laugh Productions, Inc. is a production company best known for producing the live-action sitcoms that air on Disney Channel and Disney XD. It is an owned subsidiary of the Disney-ABC Television Group. It is also one of the production companies for Liv and Maddie.
Launched in 2004, It's a Laugh Productions tape most shows at Hollywood Center Studios, with the exceptions of Hannah Montana, Good Luck Charlie, and Austin & Ally, which are taped at Sunset Bronson Studios (formerly Tribune Studios); Sonny with a Chance, which was filmed at NBC Studios (before moving to Hollywood Center Studios for its second season); Pair of Kings, which was taped at Sunset Gower Studios (before moving to Hollywood Center Studios for its third season); and Shake It Up, which is taped at LA Center Studios (as well as the second and third seasons of Good Luck Charlie). However, the shows are still similar to all of the studio's other programs. Jonas L.A. was the first live-action sitcom to be filmed in a single-camera film format as opposed to the videotaped, multi-camera format of other Disney Channel sitcoms. It was also filmed on location with closed sets.
As of 2017, nearly all of Disney Channel's live-action original programming is produced by It's a Laugh Productions.
