For the scenic design, the production team wanted the design to seen as a television set and not as an attempt to create a real location. The set relies on layers of texture and a deliberately abstracted “view” to provide depth. The use of pink highlights and additional lit strips provides a contrast to the predominantly blue backings and hopefully adds a sense of quirkiness that is intended to reflect Pestons’ personality.
