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?

It’s weird, but ever since I wrote my last essay, I keep thinking about that Eleanor Roosevelt quote — “Justice cannot be for one side alone, but must be for both.”
I probably shouldn’t say this, but my brother’s been offered a plea deal. Which, like most deals, means he has to say he did something, and in exchange, they give him some sentence that’s not totally horrible. Like maybe never even go back to prison.

I think maybe the ghost of Eleanor Roosevelt is screwing with me, because there is just no way I can write an essay about this: “Justice cannot be for one side alone, but must be for both.” Nope. Not happening. Justice, injustice, all of it is just… Nuh-uh.

J. Smith-Cameron–who plays Daniel’s mother, Janet Talbot, on RECTIFY–knows a thing about being a mom. And not just onscreen. Here she shares her insights about Janet’s outfits, her mothering style and her own signature dish (hint: It’s not pecan pie).
Q: Janet always seems on the verge of breaking down or bursting into tears. How do you maintain that kind of emotional tension?
A: That’s one of the challenges of the part. She does put a lot of energy into keeping it in, keeping that wall up, yet maintaining some kind of grace. She’s got a lump in her throat at all times; it’s her coping mechanism. This show is an actor’s dream–the man who created it, Ray McKinnon, is an actor as well–and that’s definitely written into the part.
Q: She has these very put-together outfits, and she often seems to be clutching her purse. Do those physical details help define the character for you?
