The Studio System was created by the ensemble committee on January 19, 2014 with the placeholder name Team Butterfinger. Originally scheduled to play the 8:30 slot The Studio System and the 8:00 team Sea Legs decided to switch times.
February 5, 2014 The Studio System performed a monoscene for their third show which has since become their signature form.
On July 23, 2014 following the disbanding of Sea Legs, Paul Gutkowski was added to The Studio System bringing the cast to 8 members. With Sea Legs no longer a team the 8:30 slot was filled by Gypsy Danger.
On Sunday, January 18, 2015 after 1 year at 8:00 the Ensemble Committee changed their show-time to 9:00.
The Studio System was cast with veterans that had previously been on other house teams together.
Danielia, Kaitlin and Jared starred for one season on Body Heat
Danielia, Kaitlin, Jared and David starred for two seasons on Albatross
