‘In the Arena’ retools ‘Parker Spitzer’ set


CNN’s new 8 p.m. show “In the Arena” debuted Monday originating from the same studio as the show it replaced, “Parker Spitzer.”

Since the set included a video wall as a prominent background, the change was fairly easy to accomplish. In other areas of the set, background graphics have been swapped out.

The new look is a much more subdued than the previous design, which was a bit overblown.
