Geektown Behind The Scenes Podcast 53: ‘Lucifer’ & ‘CSI: Vegas’ Production Designer Alex Hajdu

In this episode of the Geektown Behind The Scenes podcast, I’m chatting with Alex Hajdu, the brilliant production designer behind Lucifer, as well as the upcoming return of the fan-favourite franchise, CSI: Vegas.

As I’m sure most of you are aware, ‘Lucifer’ follows Lucifer Morningstar, who decides he’s had enough of being the dutiful servant in Hell and moves to spend some time on Earth to better understand humanity. He settles in Los Angeles – the City of Angels, where he meets Chloe, an LAPD detective, and joins her in solving crimes.

‘CSI: Vegas’ returns us to the smash hit CSI franchise, and to Las Vegas, albeit with a new team running the Vegas Crime Lab. However, when an existential threat emerges which could bring down the whole facility, the brilliant team of forensic investigators must welcome back old friends and deploy new techniques to preserve and serve justice in Sin City.

Alex has been working in the tv industry pretty much his entire adult life. In the interview, we discuss how he went from carrying boxes for a production company to working on one of the highest-profile procedurals on tv. We go through his work on ‘Lucifer’, from recreating the initial standing sets when production moved to LA, to complex Season 6 sets such as the Gaudi-inspired God’s throne room and the Magic Castle Theater. We also cover his work on designing a new crime lab for the hugely anticipated return of CSI to our screens.

‘Lucifer’ can be found on Netflix around the world, whilst ‘CSI: Vegas’ is set to launch on CBS on October 6th in the USA. We don’t yet have a UK premiere for the series, but if you click here, you can use our Never Miss feature to be notified when it does land on this side of the Atlantic.
