Article: 6 Things To Do After 20 Years in Prison

After almost 20 years on Death Row for the rape and murder of his teenage girlfriend, Daniel Holden is going home. His conviction has been vacated due to new DNA evidence, thrusting him back into a world he no longer knows. Sundance Channel’s new, original series RECTIFY follows Daniel during his first week back in the small, Georgia town he used to know. What will Daniel do with his first few days of freedom? You’ll have to tune into the premiere on Monday, April 22nd at 9PM to find out, but considering the project comes from the same masterminds you brought us BREAKING BAD, we should probably expect a few surprises. We asked the cast, along with some other celebs, what they would do after 20 years in prison. Their answers may surprise you.

1. What will Daniel do?
Daniel Holden taught himself how to survive the physical and emotional torment of Death Row. Once he is free he’ll need to learn how to live in a world he doesn’t understand. Everything he encounters will be a puzzle, from his relationship with his family to the technological and social changes of the last two decades.
So, what will Daniel Holden do? Whatever it is, it’s going to shake an entire town. And it might even shock you.

“I think we’ve learned one thing from this story: You’re not that famous,” Neal jokes with panelist Judah Friedlander (30 Rock), cutting him off in the middle of a long story about that one time when he was followed and wrongly profiled by Walmart security detail outside Chicago–they didn’t recognize him (though he’s semi-famous), accused him of being homeless (which is fair, he admits), and stopped him for questioning on his way out.

6 Questions With “RECTIFY” Production Designer Hugh “D.G.” Moody

Article: 6 Questions With “RECTIFY” Production Designer Hugh “D.G.” Moody

Production designer Hugh “D.G.” Moody talks prison sets, contributing to character backstories and hiding Easter eggs.

Q: Is there any overarching design philosophy on RECTIFY that you keep in mind at all times?

A: Primarily the muted color palette and realistic locations. The show’s hyperrealistic, so sometimes we find locations and they’re just perfect. Most of the time, they’re not quite right. Sometimes you don’t know what exactly’s not right about it, but after you spend some time in the space you can usually identify it and identify how to change it to fit the world we’re trying to create.

Q: You’re responsible for every last detail of people’s living spaces. How do you figure out each character’s taste?
