In January I got to puppeteer on an episode of the hit TV show, NEW GIRL. The episode aired on FOX last Tuesday.
I was brought on by the propmaster, Ben Lewis, who I’ve known since (mumble mumble). I had the good fortune of being able to pick a couple of puppeteers to work with me, and I drafted the talented Artie Esposito and Patrick Johnson of Swazzle. Here’s Patrick, myself, and Artie on the puppet set:
Puppets were built by the always delightful, Emmy-nominated Robyn Simms Johnson. Here’s a still from our episode:
It’s a show-within-the-show called “Poppycock Palace.” The main characters get obsessed with it when they’re binge-watching TV.
When we arrived on the FOX lot, we were very excited to discover we each had our own trailer:
I asked the PA where the ladies’ room was. He said very gently, “it’s in your trailer.”
“I have my own bathroom?” I shrieked. This was an amazing day. Also, we were listed as “Co-Starring” in the credits!
Working on this show was so much fun. What a pleasure, all around! Congrats to all!
