Food Network Stage Sets

I just recently saw the set for Rachel Ray's 30 minute meals being used (totally unchanged) in an episode of Law and Order about a chef who murders his lover/producer. Is this a common occurrence to see one set in another totally unrelated show? Or is the Food Network owned by NBC?

  1. Maybe they are planning on "doing away" with Rachael can only hope. Ha.

    1. I'm only guessing here, but I don't believe there is any ownership connection between NBC and Food Network. No reason, however, why a show filmed in NYC couldn't rent a Food Network set for a location shoot. You see it with restaurants all the time.

      1. I would also imagine (also guessing) that the Food Network kitchens would be especially attractive to producers since it's already set up and designed for a TV crew.

        1. Is Rachael Ray still doing 30 min meals? Maybe Food Network rented it to Law & Order before taking it down.

          1. So admit it how many of you were hoping she was the victim?

            I saw that episode too it was a little distracting. It was obviously her set; but not really because it was supposed to be another chef and another show. But there you are thinking Rachel Ray the whole time.
