I’m just so excited that we get to talk about all things Daisy Jones & the Six. Tell me a little bit about how it all came together?
I got a call from Mike Nelson, one of the producers who I’d worked with previously. He said, “Hey, I think there’s a book you should read.”
I read it, and I didn’t leave my hotel. I read it in one sitting, and I couldn’t put it down. I literally called him the same day, and I said, “I need to do this. I have to do this.”
I had never worked with Amazon before. I had never worked with Hello Sunshine. I was coming in completely cold.
I knew that it was going to be a hot property for any designer that anybody would want to do it. I just wanted to get the interview. I said, “Just get me in the room,” I told Mike [Nelson]. “Just get me in the room.”
While I was in New Orleans, I did a complete visual history of the book. I made my own book in images. It started from the whole history—from the ’60s to the ’70s. I made a book, and I brought that book into my first meeting.
I think everybody was blown away that I had just done so much research. I had never wanted a job so badly in my life. When I went to Amazon, they were like, “Okay, well, this pretty much looks like the show we want to do.” I had pulled tons of images from the period. I think that’s what nailed it for me.
