Creative Consulting

In support of Telepictures' newest daytime talk show, "The Jennifer Hudson Show", Michael was brought on board as production designer and creative consultant to re-imagine the existing Ellen Degeneres show's studio set. Michael and the Fourline team worked closely with Jennifer and the Warner Bros team to craft a design that embraced Jennifer's style, and the show's creative goals and was something different than what you normally see with a daytime talk show set. Specifically, we incorporated soft curves throughout the set and moved away from Ellen's existing hard edges. In a PLSN article highlighting the set, Michael said "I wanted to intentionally embrace the fact that this is a daytime talk show. To do that, we created these larger-than-life curved windows along the upstage to give a feeling of natural light spilling into the space."
