In the Can Productions - the series and how it began

The On the Leesh office was transformed this past weekend to become the offices of In the Can Productions. Production Designer Diana Whitten said that "It practically designed itself because the writing and actors were so strong.

Everything had such a clearly defined motivation, but it was fun to think of extra details. I felt very free to play within the perameters that Julie created. Early on, I decided that the characters would communicate through post-it notes, so the set becomes more cluttered with post-its as the episodes continue. There are a lot of internal jokes that might be hard to catch on the small screen, but every detail has been planned. There is nothing on set that wasn't carefully chosen. Basically I rode the momentum and had a great time playing around with the color, style and details."
