John Hanlon Interviews Beth Kushnick on Designing for “The Good Wife”

Posted on October 5, 2015 at 2:58 pm

“The Good Wife” has one of the best production design teams on television, so I was especially interested to read the interview my friend John Hanlon did with Beth Kushnick, set designer Beth Kushnick for The Credits. I loved the way she described the home and office environments as giving a backstory to the characters and the care she says viewers show in noticing the tiniest details. And her description of her favorite sets for the show:

got the big corner office. I like the concept that she’s not laden with paperwork and files. That her work gets done in a highly managed and she just doesn’t have that mess around her and it’s all kind of beautiful things. I love the colors of Alicia’s apartment. Her bedroom was a color that I had at my old house in my bedroom and so that’s one of my favorite rooms of her house. I actually really like Grace’s room. I like that kind of mirroring my experience with my daughter and looking for things for her.
