Plot Synopsis

In each 60-minute episode, two Hollywood production designers and their teams compete for a $10,000 prize by designing and building original movie sets inspired by the science fiction, fantasy and horror genres. To build their film-quality worlds -- sets depicting a devastated alien landscape to be explored by a crash-landed astronaut or a throne room for a gorgeous but brutal alien queen -- each team is given $15,000, three days, access to the HOT SET supply room, and many of the prop and set dressing houses located in Hollywood. The contestants then have 30 minutes to shoot a scene on their original set on the HOT SET sound stage, and then they reveal their work to a panel of judges who select a winner based on the teams' creativity, technique and overall presentation. The judges, who are leaders in feature film production design, are: three-time Art Director's Guild Award nominee Curt Beech; two-time Oscar nominee Lilly Kilvert; and Art Director's Guild Award nominee Barry Robison.
