Sometimes, when you do promotion for a television show BEFORE the pilot has been shot or completed... things end up changing. This was the case with UNDERGROUND (premiering tonight on WGN). Sony hired@ez-productionsto do a publicity shoot of the entire cast, with photographerJustin Stephens that would be used to create artwork to promote the show. At this point absolutely nothing forthe series had been shot yet. In fact, part of the coordination for EZ Productions was coordinating around hair and makeup tests for the talent.
Case in point...The amazing and talented actor Christopher Meloni (Law & Order: SVU) was originally envisioned as a long haired, gun slinger type seen in these behind the scenes photos. This was changed and the wig was lost.
Which meant... so was the photoshoot we did! Ah well. It happens, and at least we got to meet the talented cast! I’m also really glad that at least a few behind the scenes photos survived so that I could share them with you all! The shots really did turn out amazingly!
