Old Settler

Old Settler

Role: Production Designer

Location: PBS Hollywood Presents

Description: This TV movie was based on the play of the same name. The Director and star was Debbie Allen and it also starred Phylicia Rashad. It was shot entirely on the black lot at KCET in Los Angeles. We built the front of the brownstone in the parking lot and all the interiors were on stages. Chris Brown was the Art Director and Jason Howard was the Set Decorator.  I made the interior of the Savoy ballroom silver and black based on B&W photos and when my father saw the show, he told me it was actually painted gold, as he had danced there in NYC in the 1940s, when the show is set.
