CNN repurposes ‘Piers Morgan’ set for Cosby interview
For the special, CNN dimmed the dura backdrops to create a more somber look and feel. The dura’s backlit frames were illuminated in a pale gold, while the network also added freestanding flat screens in both portrait and landscape orientation that featured black and white photos of Cosby.
The set’s corner rear projection screen was used to display a branded animation loop.
Lemon and Camerota were seated on two chairs on one side of the studio, with the five woman on the opposite — three on chairs and two on high stools.
Carefully tuned lighting illuminated the talent while keeping the backgrounds and relatively muted.
The set, which was modified after “Piers Morgan Live” went off the air to feature a bright and rather garish stylized cityscape duras in favor of the dimensional abstract design used for Morgan’s show. The corner RP screen was retained, as was the riser in the middle of the studio.
