Sunset Bronson Studios hosted 1927's landmark "The Jazz Singer" and TV shows including "Golden Girls" and "Judge Judy."

The Arsenio Hall Show, which launches in national syndication Sept. 9, will be shot at the Sunset Bronson Studios in Hollywood.

“Sunset Bronson Studios is Hollywood, and there’s no better place for The Arsenio Hall Show to call home,” said Hall in a Wednesday announcement. “I can’t wait to get started and become a part of the history of this famous location.”

The show will be on Stage 19, where the first talking motion picture, The Jazz Singer, was shot in 1927. The facility was then the home of Warner Bros. before the studio moved to Burbank.

Other productions that have used that space include Golden Girls, Married With Children, Who’s the Boss?, Days of Our Lives and Judge Judy. Judge Joe Brown also shot there, but his show was recently canceled, making that part of the space available.

Hall’s return to late-night talk is being distributed by CBS Television Distribution, which has cleared the show in about 95 percent of the country. It is anchored on the Tribune stations in major markets including New York, Chicago and Los Angeles.

Hall, besides being a host, is an executive producer along with Neal Kendall and Hall’s personal manager John Ferriter. It is being produced by Eye Productions in association with Arsenio Hall Communications.
