Last summer when I was brought on as Executive Producer of the woman’s talk show Our Take on Arise TV, part of my job was to help coordinate the look of the set. Along with Eugenia Harvey, the show’s Director of Programming and stylist Dorcia Kelley, we created the show set in record time and on a limited budget.

Shopping with interior stylist Dorcia was a lesson and an adventure.

First, she knew the stores and did her research ahead of time so we were very focused in choosing our items once we arrived.  Of course, we checked out the items on sale first , checking our shopping list as we went along. I asked Dorcia a few questions about what goes into designing the right look for a television set.

She emailed me the following answers in between shopping for a client:

Is designing a studio set like decorating a room at home or house?

“No, both are very much different. With designing a studio set you must consider back drop, height of correspondent, and what colors the audience will response to in a positive manner.”

How closely do you work with the clients/producers to create the final style?

“You always work very closely to both. Your job is to execute their vision.”

How important is the budget?

“Very, any job you do the budget is always important. It can be the determining factor for shopping at Restoration Hardware, getting custom tables built or shopping at thrift store trying to score a bargain.”

Almost a year after helping us pull together the Our Take set, I asked Dorcia to look back and critique it.  She told me that she would have done a few things differently. When looking  back at the set, Dorcia described it as: “very movie theater driven that had masculine appeal with pops of color. I would have loved to see it brighter. I’m a fan of bright color sets that are modern.”

As it turns out, the movie theatre set with the masculine pops of color of the old set are perfect for the show I recently launched  Arise On Screen. Arise On Screen is a weekly movie review show hosted by film critic, Mike Sargent, that airs on the weekend online in the United States and internationally on SKYTV and Hotbird .

We are still working on the “look”  and feel of the show and recently changed the back wall. When planning a set Kelley stated, “The first thing to consider is the back drop. For example, will there be a green screen, etc.”

Above is the set with our new  background wall. Dorcia said if money were no object she would change a few things.

“Well, my new idea on this set design would actual be very low cost. I would approach the style of this set from an old cinema prospective by using two studio directors chairs with leather backs, place a tall chrome table in the middle of the directors chairs and prop a Hollywood studio lamp in the back.”

“If I could only change two things on the set because of a limited budget I would change, The chairs!”

Thanks Dorcia Kelley,  good to know and  I will definitely keep this in mind!

If I had a dollar for every time someone told me they had an idea for a show they would host, I would be a multimillionaire.  In my two decades of producing television, I’ve met several people who have had a taste of the TV spotlight either as a guest on a television show or just knew that, if given the chance to be on TV, they would be a natural.

To the naked eye of the viewer watching television, what TV personalities do on air seems effortless,  but trust me it’s a lot more work than you could ever imagine.  It’s really not so easy to be relaxed as you relay accurate information, listen to your guests, and keep your audience engaged in the conversation. On many occasions, the ultimate talent is doing all of the above while wearing an earpiece.  In their earpiece they are listening for directions and cues coming from the producer in the control room.

Our Take host Christina Brown has spent the last three weeks sharing the one-hour show with a different guest host every day.  In each show, Christina is taking a chance on our guest host being good on camera, a chance on having good chemistry with them, and finally a chance that they will have done their homework and will bring lively fun, be engaged and bring interesting conversation to the hour-long show.

We’ve invited a variety of personalities to sit in the Our Take guest host seat including pundits, bloggers, and journalists of all nationalities. We are only three weeks into taping but we plan to have many more sit in the hot seat.

One of the most popular questions is: What do you look for in a guest host?

I believe that practice makes perfect and having television experience is a major plus.  One of my personal requirements is to screen video of potential candidates from past television appearances.  We’ll do our best to prepare you beforehand for the program with background information on the segments.  A good person for the job will find a way to balance the role with the show host. It’s a delicate dance to dance. The guest host must be prepared and know how to share the spotlight yet not take over.

While a show host will gladly share the spotlight, he or she should never have to fight for airtime on their own show.

After the show, there is a review of your guest appearance. We encourage you to watch your Our Take segment on our YouTube channel and critique yourself. Take some notes on what you can do better. Is the connection with the host perceived in a positive manner?

The camera does not lie.  Pay attention to your interaction with the guests and host, watch how you sit in the chair, and read your host’s body language. Do you appear comfortable?

If you’re seeking feedback following your guest appearance, please feel free to email me to set up a time. Remember good guest hosts will get noticed and will most likely receive a return invitation.

Ready4Air TV – Repost: When Gremlins Hit The Television Control Room

Our Take on Arise TV

January 29, 2014 | Posted in Social TV | By

This picture was taken on Friday at the last show of our debut week.  Our Take on Arise TV is up and running and, from what we’ve been hearing from the rave reviews, we are rocking it!  YAY!

The last two weeks have been a little hectic, but like anything else it gets easier with time. Our team is finding a rhythm. As with any show launch, there is a lot of trial and error to find a great flow for everyone involved.  I won’t lie; there were a few crazy moments behind the scenes during our debut week, including the television gremlins messing with our control room equipment and computers, but nothing was going to stop the show from getting on the live air waves.

Speaking of the control room, I found time on day three of the debut week  to capture our crew in action. We are a serious bunch. LOL!

In the control room everyone plays a vital role while the show is airing. The show director is the pilot calling the shots – literally.  Our director, Jack, instructs the cameramen on what angles of shots to take during the show. Beatrix, Broadcast Line Producer, keeps track of the program’s run time and we both monitor the various elements (photos, videos) that will be shown to you, the audience.  Dean is in charge of getting our SKYPE in working order. If SKYPE isn’t working or fails during the show, Dean is hustling to get the guest on the phone with their head shot as a place holder. For me, being in the control room is kind of like being in the cockpit of an airplane. While I’ve never flown a plane, I’ve shot video of a cockpit interior and watched pilots simulate flying, and its fun! The colorful lights, monitors, prompter, and numbers counting down get my heart racing every time.

Our interns, Briana and Kala below, are in charge of getting scripts and show rundowns printed, and guests to make-up and then into the studio on time for their segment.

On a perfect day, our production runs like a well-oiled engine. And then there are days when the TV gremlins creep in to play with us, driving us all a little crazy.  The gremlins erase our scripts from the prompter, close the headset mic and prevent me from talking to or hearing Christina on set. They also kill our SKYPE connection so we lose our guest interview and jumble Bea’s rundown times.It is the powerful work of our dynamic team that keeps it all together. We are like chameleons who adjust to the challenges and keep the show going. Our host Christina and our guest hosts roll with the punches and all viewers see is the polished end result.Ah! The magic of television. LOL!

As we gear up for week three of the show, I’m hoping the gremlins will give us a break. REALLY!

Who am I kidding? We actually need those gremlins since the truth is they make for great stories after the show.

Stay tuned……

Ready4Air | TV Is A Gamble: Coming To Terms When Your Show Gets Canceled

Framed Devon in Our Take Control Room

While there is nothing like the feeling of launching a new show, there is truly nothing quite like being told your show has been canceled, put on “temporary hiatus,” or will cease production.

To be honest, it SUCKS! LOL!

If you decide to work in television, you’ll learn that when you work on a startup or any show, you are taking a gamble. Getting canceled is all a part of the TV game.

Last week, I was reminded of the not-so-pleasant feeling of having your show canceled. I’ll guess that comedian W. Kamau Bell, a newbie TV personality and host of the show Totally Biased, had the same feeling as he taped his last show on Thursday, canceled only a few weeks into his second season.   

Totally Biased aired on FX network and was taped in the studio next to the studio where I worked this summer on the launch of the program Our Take for Arise TV. Bell and executive producer Chris Rock launched their show in the new studio shortly after Our Take stopped production in July.

If you are the gambling type, then television is a great way to gamble. In TV, you bet on a few things, including the executives who have decided to invest in your show. Hopefully, they are committed to making it work. You also hope the talent and staff, who work around the clock, are up to the challenge of bringing the show to life. Finally, you want the audience to love the show enough to keep tuning in to increase those valuable ratings.

I often say that launching a startup show is probably one of the most challenging aspects of television. You are literally gambling on an idea and building it up from scratch. It takes a lot of work to get a new show off the ground. A glimpse will reveal nonstop work to find the right team who will create the vision of the show, hire a staff (ours was very, very small), build and design the set and show graphics, and select or create the show music–all on a tight budget. The budget is tight because no one knows for sure if the show is going to make it past season one.

It’s a gamble.

It’s a gamble many producers are willing to take because if a startup show takes off and gets picked up for another season, then it could turn into a nice gig that lasts for several years.

In some cases, producers and crews follow the work gambling on a startup project. They move across country for work while others leave established shows for the chance at getting a promotion to a higher position on a new show. Some producers are just happy to find a job in production, since projects are far and few between.

In the beginning of my career, I took a gamble when I was offered a job on Geraldo’s brand new talk show.

I was offered a researcher position for only for 13 weeks at Geraldo’s startup talk show. After those 13 weeks, the syndicators would decide if they wanted to continue with the show. I jumped at the offer and left a stable job with benefits (startup shows usually don’t offer benefits) to take a chance at working in the new world of daytime television.

The 1987 gamble paid off since the show lasted 11 years.

When a show is on for several continuing seasons, it’s hard to imagine it ending. However, the week before Thanksgiving in 1997, Geraldo told the staff that the talk show would end at the close of the eleventh season, in May 1998. I remember feeling sad, yet excited.

While I loved my host and the day-to-day unpredictability of the program, I also witnessed many coworkers come and go. I had spent 11 years working on one television show and the idea of seeing what else was out there in the world of television made me breathless.

Six months after Geraldo told us the news, we eased into the last day of taping. Shockingly, I think we were all ready for it.

It was a completely different scenario this summer when Our Take ceased production. The news was very unexpected. The day we got the news turned out to be our last week of taping.

When I was told the show was being put on hiatus, I was disappointed but rolled with the punches. After so many years in the TV business, I try to be prepared for anything to happen.

Our tiny production team had just discovered its rhythm when the program was pulled from the lineup, along with two other shows on the startup network Arise TV. We hoped for the best. The plan was to bring the show back in the fall. Unfortunately, it never came back.

As executive producer, I loved my team and was proud of Our Take. I helped give birth to a show where content was interesting, relevant, and fun. Most of all, viewers were watching. I even received viewer emails of support all the way from Stockholm, Sweden! Very cool!

With Our Take shelved for good, the team and I are off seeking the next position. Of course, I was sorry to see the show go, but as I’ve learned over the years–as I’m sure W. Kamau Bell has, too–it’s never personal, but just all a part of the TV business.

With two days until the launch of “Our Take” on Arise TV, I’m spending my weekend tying up a few loose ends which includes reviewing the show rundown and research, meeting with host Christina Brown and hitting Ikea just one more time.  LOL!

We had an extra week to fine tune the show before we go on the air and last night was our rehearsal in the studio.

Show Director Jack Niesi worked with the crew to block the set in the right space to get the proper lighting and camera angles. When you’re watching television it’s hard to tell just how small a studio space actually is, so you would be surprised at the actual size of many studios.  It takes careful maneuvering by the director to get just the right shots.

Our rehearsal went smoothly, the IKEA chairs look great, the rug and coffee table which took days to find fit in place perfectly and host Christina Brown was ready to roll. I caught her feeling right at home chatting with Beatrix Parash, show Broadcast Line Producer.  We worked late into the night and it was the perfect way to end the week before our Monday debut.

There’s no doubt that last week flew by and we were busy. We want to keep you in the loop behind-the-scenes so here are a few photos that highlight our hectic five days of planning, meeting and gearing up for the launch and weeks ahead.

Yes, we are keeping it social too.

Social TV and “Our Take” When Old School Meets New School

June 7, 2013 | Posted in Social TV, TV Production | By

Earlier this week I wrote about my love of being behind-the-scenes of a television show and briefly mentioned a new project was working. I’ve been posting teaser photos and videos on Facebook all week and now I’m in the countdown phase of the project.

Arise News’ “Our Take” is the latest addition to Arise TV and we premiere on… well even the date is a work in progress.

We are sooooo EXCITED!

My small and dedicated staff may be small BUT they are mighty.  They have been working nonstop like maniacs this week to get this show Ready4Air.  Launching a show from the ground up is no small feat and by adding a social media component to the mix — you’ve got one big mountain to climb.

“Our Take” will be on daily for one hour in the afternoons at 1 p.m. EST and I’ve been telling people it’s a hybrid of “The View” and “Huff Post Live” featuring people of color.  We will be covering hot topics from a woman’s perspective and engaging our online audience through different social media channels – it truly is social TV.

As Executive Producer of “Our Take,” I implement and oversee the look, content and feel of the program and that includes the set-up of the set and monitoring the budget like a hawk.  We are starting from the pits of the sandbox and need to show content, guests, a set, grappling graphics and create a strong, engaging social media presence.

It’s Friday and we haven’t even settled on a start date — trust me it will all be done and Ready4Air when the cameras begin to roll.

Hosted by Arise America news anchor Christina Brown, “Our Take” offers a fresh take on the day’s news and water cooler topics. We will feature issues of significance to people of color, especially those from Africa and the African Diaspora.

After 25 years in traditional television and the last two years working in social media, I get to combine my two loves. I like to say “old school skillz meets new media tools.”

I have an amazing team that includes a tireless and smart talent in host Christina Brown; our tech superstars, Robert and David; bookers, Marjorie and Kuae; and a super talented intern, Ms. Briana Montalvo.  Look at us below, our computers or mobile devices are never far behind.  LOL!

I love that “Our Take” will engage its online audience in every way possible, including Google Hangouts, Skype, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube.  Robert set-up our platforms up this week and we already have close to 400 “LIKES” on our Facebook page so we see you are already socially engaged.

We are still days away and lots of work to do! The show airs in New York from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.; 5 to 6 p.m. in London; and 8 to 9 p.m. in Johannesburg.

For now, Arise TV is seen online in the US, but is in 62 million homes on SKY overseas. I love it, Deborah Mitchell Media Associates has gone global. LOL!  Don’t forget to watch Ready4Air for more information on when you will see “Our Take” on Arise TV.

Stay Tuned…..
