On the heels of our success with other late night comedy programs, Mr. Wonderful was invited to design and produce the show open and package for ‘The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore’. Following an energetic pitch of four unique concepts to Larry and his team, we were on board for a hilariously creative ride.
We channeled Larry's ideas into an authentic, over-the-top dramatic news style open. Highlighting historic events of the last four decades, the open interspersed comedic cameos of Larry shot on green screen with authentic props and CG backgrounds. During the shoot, Larry Wilmore, complete with giant afro, sideburns and fly leisure suit, showed off his hilarious improv skills with a ’70’s era dialogue that had the crew in tears.
