It's a Laugh Productions, Inc. is a production company which produces the live-action sitcoms that air on Disney Channel and Disney XD.

Most shows are taped 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 taped at NBC Studios (before moving to Hollywood Center Studios for its second season; as did Austin & Ally); 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.

Notes:

  • Both "That's So Suite Life of Hannah Montana" and "Wizards on Deck with Hannah Montana" are each counted as three separate episodes. "Take This Job and Love It" is officially counted as a Hannah Montana episode, "Weasels on Deck" is counted as an I'm in the Band episode, "Charlie Shakes It Up" is counted as a Good Luck Charlie episode, and "Austin & Jessie & Ally All Star New Year" and "Good Luck Jessie: NYC Christmas" are counted as an episode for both series, due to them being a separate event.
  • There is a crossover episode of a show every year except for 2008 due to a writer's guild of America strike and the financial crisis.
