Interview: Bill Groom, Emmy-winning production designer for ‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’

Bill Groom is no stranger to the Emmys, he’s a four-time winner for HBO’s Boardwalk Empire. With its expansive sets and designs of Atlantic City, both the boardwalk and interiors, Groom was more than ready to take on the mid-century look of New York City for Amazon’s The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, which earned 14 Emmy nominations for its freshman season, including one for Groom’s meticulously detailed production design. 

In my interview with Groom we discuss his incredible body of work which includes HBO’s Vinyl, ABC’s miniseries When We Rise and the feature films Eat Pray Love and Milk, the process of location vs sets and the leg work involved in recreating the period with accuracy and detail. 

Bill Groom is nominated in Outstanding Production Design for a Narrative Period or Fantasy Program (One Hour or More) for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel episode “Ya Shivu v Bolshom Dome Na Kholme.”

The next season of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel will hit Amazon in late 2018 or early 2019.

This interview runs 34m with opening and closing music.

Opening music: “Egh-choh-choh” by The Barry Sisters

Closing song: “Rebel Rebel” by David Bowie

The Emmy voting period ends August 27th at 10pm PST.

The Creative Arts Emmys will be a two-night affair on Saturday, September 8th and Sunday, September 9th.

The 70th Primetime Emmy Awards will be Monday, September 17th.
