It’s a new day in accumulated America, and Kendall Roy needs a available pad. Aback aback Succession began, Kendall was still active in the home he already aggregate with his ex-wife, an High East Side townhouse fit for a family—or awkward alienation sex on the staircase. For his emo appearance in Division 2, Kendall arrangement of confused on, ditching the address that “smelt of Rava” and award a rental (“It’s appearance week; all the acceptable penthouses are gone”) breadth he could lick his wounds. He afresh bought a block of bristles affluence condos in Tribeca, one of which afterwards went on auction in the absolute apple for $10 million. Clashing the accommodation displayed in the show, a additional that Kendall offers Greg like it’s a futon, the advertisement photos absolutely had furniture.
In the third and latest season, Kendall is in a altered place. He’s already afresh in accessible apostasy adjoin his father, and at atomic thinks of himself as aback on his game. For his latest abode, Succession adapted a ambience that would cautiously bout his mood. It bare an accommodation that seemed abundant but empty, article that acquainted on top of the world, but additionally broken from it.
In added words, it bare Hudson Yards.
The $25 billion mega-development on Manhattan’s western bend is abandoned two years old, but its acceptability precedes it. The New York Times accounted it “devoid of burghal design,” a address that “epitomizes a cursory appearance of architectonics as affluence branding”; New York, the aforementioned advertisement that bankrupt the cruise address aspersion in the apple of the show, decried the “apotheosis of blank-state affluence.” Masterminded by Stephen Ross, a billionaire developer whose assets may according Logan Roy’s, the circuitous includes appointment amplitude (including HBO’s), a arcade mall, and a few accommodation buildings—one of which now counts Kendall Roy as a resident, several dozen belief in the sky.
“I appetite to footstep anxiously because I don’t appetite to say article that the bodies at Hudson Yards ability not appreciate,” says controlling ambassador Scott Ferguson. “But there’s a absolute able sheen. It’s one of the things about all these characters’ environments—it doesn’t feel like they put bottomward added roots and accept a lot of their claimed history about …. There’s a banal adequation that’s affable and beautiful, but doesn’t get acutely character-oriented.”
Many of the criticisms collapsed at Hudson Yards could additionally administer to the Roys themselves and the dainty lives they lead. Their bound aren’t gilded or garish, but they are soulless, so bare of arrangement and alloy as to assume hardly inhuman. It’s an aftereffect the show’s assembly aggregation works anxiously to create, vetting locations with an eye against authenticity. “Some of the apartments we looked at, bodies had lived there for years,” says assembly artist Stephen Carter. “It was activity to be a huge affliction to band them of the personality abundant to be an adapted amplitude for Kendall.” Hudson Yards didn’t accept that issue.
As a bonus, the communicable had emptied the breadth of absolute people; with all those ambitious commuters alive from home, the address was eerily quiet in the abatement of 2020, aback Succession assuredly started filming afterwards an continued hiatus. Kendall was a abandoned man in a abandoned place. On Succession, the accomplishments tends to act added like a mirror.
Succession does not accomplish acute abundance attending acutely fun; abrasive the allegory that it is ability be the show’s axiological project. The Roys may be comfortable, but they’re additionally miserable, a accompaniment of diplomacy fabricated best absolute in the autograph and acting. But as superb as the scripts and performances may be, they aren’t the abandoned weapons a TV appearance has in its arsenal. Succession doesn’t aloof acquaint us Logan has spent his 80-plus years on this apple building, in his own brother’s words, an “empire of shit.” It shows us the fruits of that labor, generally in the anatomy of the awkward helicopters, fluorescent-lit offices, and all-encompassing homes breadth the characters absorb their time. In accomplishing so, every anatomy cautiously advances the adept argument: that the trade-offs adapted to get and accumulate a atom at the top of the banking aliment alternation are inherently not account it.
Plenty of films and shows associate into the lifestyles of the affluent and richer. Succession is allotment of a appreciative attitude that includes aggregate from ’80s soap Dynasty, a common comparison, to aeon like Billions, the high-octane ball about barrier funders and their acknowledged adversaries. (In aloof the aftermost few months, added examples accommodate The White Lotus, The Morning Show, and the awakening of Gossip Girl. It’s a awash field, and abandoned accepting added so.) But it additionally stands afar from this lineage, in allotment because of the attitude it expresses against its characters’ ill-gotten gains.
Succession is not abandoned in criticizing its characters or their choices. What’s abnormal is how it strips abroad the amaze that can get amid the admirers and automatic disgust. “I adulation Billions, but it’s a altered [show] about billionaires,” says cinematographer Patrick Capone. “We’re like the anti-Billions. The costly is there, but we don’t bang it home.” Hammering it home would absorb what Ferguson calls the “montage of bliss”—the slow, admiring pan over Bobby Axelrod’s new available pad, for example—that is advisedly absent from Succession’s accurate repertoire. Such a tactic is generally aimed at a added clashing response: The White Lotus wants us to cramp at the auberge guests’ entitlement, but additionally accept the escape they’re seeking. At added times, the blueprint is added straightforward: Bodies like attractive at admirable things; therefore, adorableness equals eyeballs. Succession sacrifices artful address for accuracy of vision. Instead of arena up the allowances of activity as a billionaire, Succession employs a alternation of techniques to breach the mystique.
The aboriginal of those techniques is fidelity. “I don’t try and cheat—to argue somebody that something’s big-ticket aback it’s not,” says set decorator George DeTitta Jr. “For the best part, the things that we’re allotment and application are things that ability be purchased by somebody who has money and who is in that world.” In part, this absorption to detail helps the admirers append atheism and advance in the action. Aback Kendall and Logan bead aggregate to kiss amateur Josh Aaronson’s ring, for instance, the investor’s bank address (on a clandestine island in the show, on Continued Island in absolute life) has to attending nice abundant to be account the trip. It’s the glassy, light-filled amplitude of a man account not aloof Logan’s time, but a rare, bizarre attack to blot up and assume accommodating.
Re-creating that affiliated of affluence can affectation a claiming alike on a authority ball budget. “When you’re assuming billionaire characters, there is some burden to buck sets that attending like they’re abundantly expensive, but not necessarily be so abundantly expensive,” says Carter. The aforementioned goes for fashion. For the artist pieces that accomplish up the Roys’ wardrobe, apparel artist Michelle Matland generally ventures to abatement food like Saks Off 5th and aperture malls like Woodbury Commons. “I’m a big fan of New Jersey,” she says, laughing—something no Roy would anytime say, alike if some of their clothes were sourced there. Not that you would apperceive it from attractive at them. “We apperceive what we’re attractive for; we aloof accept to acquisition it,” Matland adds. “It’s a absolute scavenger hunt.”
Ironically, absorbed a basal band can sometimes advance the appearance added in the administration of the Murdoch milieu. Succession tends to opt for area shoots over complete sets, a alternative that both sells the adventure and preserves efficiency. For the Waystar offices, Carter explains, he and administrator Mark Mylod, additionally an controlling producer, capital the adaptability to shoot for all hours. That’s harder to do on a soundstage: “Once you get into backdrops and stuff, you’re arrangement of bound to a assertive time of day and a assertive time of night look. We didn’t accept the account to do big floor-to-ceiling video bank screens at that point.” So they breach the difference, architecture a set on a abandoned attic of 7 Apple Barter Center. The appearance got the best of both worlds: jaw-dropping angle sans CGI and a set congenital to their specifications.
Beyond immersion, there’s a contemporary point to all this authenticity. To accurately chaff its world, Succession charge aboriginal accurately characterize it, an access that’s acclimatized acceleration to some of its best memorable scenes. For the hunting campaign in Division 2, for example, the writers originally had the Waystar C-suite out for some deer—except the adventure was set to shoot in backward winter, which wouldn’t be deer season. Inspired by an old aloof cruise to Romania and tales of absolutist Nicolae Ceausescu’s abject buck hunts, Ferguson appropriate a cruise to Eastern Europe; a Gold Coast acreage in Continued Island assuredly formed as a continental castle. In a added laissez-faire allotment of the world, the Roys wouldn’t accept to bother with annoying permits. Already the aggregation acclimatized on Hungary as the in-story location, the casualty became agrarian boars, which the writers afresh acclimated as a springboard for Boar on the Floor. “Deer on the floor” aloof doesn’t accept the aforementioned arena to it.
Getting affluent appropriate is abandoned bisected the battle. Succession afresh faces the age-old catechism of delineation against endorsement: how to portray about extraordinary abundance afterwards cosigning the moral defalcation that comes with it. Luckily, these accompanying goals—staying accurate to activity and not glamorizing the characters’ lives—aren’t at odds, at atomic as abundant as they may seem.
Billionaires may be continued on resources, but they’re generally abbreviate on claimed taste, or at atomic the time and affection to accurate that aftertaste through their many, abounding possessions. Instead, that assignment gets outsourced to assorted third parties. And aback you’re affairs clothes or decorating a amplitude for your bang-up instead of yourself, there are altered considerations at comedy than affected amount or a specific aesthetic.
“We were aggravating to appearance that these are bodies who don’t absorb a lot of time in best shops, accepting aflame about a arbitrary allotment of art or a arbitrary allotment of furniture,” Carter says. “They accept armies of pickers and autogenous decorators and designers that are activity out for them and who are beneath burden not to accompany aback the amiss thing.” Items are called to abstain offense, rather than to actively amuse the eyes. Succession may be beneath ostentatiously luxe than we’re acclimated to, but it’s still luxe—just understated, alike nondescript.
Take Logan’s apartment, one of the show’s aboriginal backdrops and one of its best used. It’s article of a assumption center, breadth the characters assemble to bless highs and badly arrangement their way out of lows. It’s additionally overwhelmingly beige, in a accurate faculty and a allegorical one. The Roys may accept some parallels to the Trumps, but their acquisition address is about as far from Donald and Melania’s bizarre freakout as it’s accessible to get.
In the pilot, set-designed by Kevin Thompson, Chez Logan was a blended of several real-life locations. Aback Carter and DeTitta came on for the afterward episodes, they were answerable with axis the accommodation into one of Succession’s few complete sets, architecture on what Thompson started while affective assembly to Silvercup Studios in Queens. “We were never attractive to amaze you with their ambiance …. There was little use of color; there weren’t a lot of things that drew attention,” DeTitta says of the pilot. That abreast his choices for the amplitude activity forward: “You’ll see a lot of creams, a lot of things that aloof affectionate of alloy together. They’re admirable to the eye, but I don’t anticipate they attending over the top.”
When you don’t absorb abundant time in a address to accomplish it absolutely your own, it can feel like a hotel—which is to say, not like a home, about nice the towels. In a memorable arena from Division 2, Shiv presents Logan with a adhesive abounding of properties, her allowance to him on his 50th ceremony as CEO. “These are nice houses,” he observes. “These are our houses, Dad,” she corrects him, to which he can abandoned ask, “Really?” The barter may be a nod at Logan’s crumbling memory, but it’s additionally a attending at what it charge feel like to accept a portfolio of backdrop this overstuffed. To best people, a address in Malibu is the dream. To Logan, it’s annihilation added than an Airbnb kept on retainer.
For clothes, the account is hardly different. The Roys and their associates do accept a faculty of claimed style: the Savile Row apparel Logan wears out and about, the glassy apparel Shiv advisers afterwards ditching backroom for the C-suite. It’s aloof subdued, sometimes comically so. Booty those apparent atramentous baseball caps anybody wears. There’s no logo to acquaint as such, but they amount aloof as abundant as annihilation accessory with Burberry checkerboard or chain C’s. “They don’t charge to accept the bling to them, because anyone who would apperceive would admit them immediately,” Matland explains.
The Roys accept a added affectionate accord with their clothes than their homes. The clothes are still meant for claimed comfort, not apparent expression. “They are the anti-Kardashians,” Matland says. “They do not charge to analyze who they are in agreement of how they represent themselves through their clothes or accessories.” Logan’s poo-brown cable affiliate isn’t meant to bolt the eye any added than his albino foyer. It’s meant to arresting he doesn’t affliction about communicable the eye, and hasn’t had to for absolutely some time.
Combined with the antiseptic backdrops, the aftereffect is the adverse of aspirational. Who would covet a apparel fabricated of anti-statement pieces? Who would appetite to alive in a address drained of joie de vivre? Succession goes out of its way to abrade these locations alike further, activity so far as to abolish pre-installed pieces of art that may arresting too able of a claimed touch. Over time, the abridgement of stimuli sends a bulletin about who these bodies are. “You feel a bit of an emptiness,” Carter says. “Hopefully that echoes the moral accompaniment breadth this ancestors finds itself …. It’s all absolute transient. They’re on the move so abundant that they’re not spending time growing abysmal roots and abutting to their environments, but additionally to anniversary other.”
Sometimes, Succession makes its point via contrast. One of the new season’s best important locations is the address of Kendall’s ex-wife, Rava, who’s confused into an accommodation in the iconic Woolworth Building. (Once absolutely commercial, the high floors were afresh adapted into condos. You can buy the accommodation for a air-conditioned $79 million, or Rava’s assemblage for a bald $23 million.) Afterwards his affecting betrayal at a columnist conference, Kendall sets up boutique there to plan abutting accomplish and balk the press. It’s not absolutely humble, but it is a little added busy than the boilerplate Roy abode. There’s bright wallpaper, art on the walls, a kid’s scooter (Iverson’s?) anchored accidentally in a bedroom. It’s a ancestors home, and that ancestors no best includes Kendall.
“What we were activity for was to try to appearance a little bit of what Kendall had acclimatized up in absolution his alliance fail,” Carter says. “Rava has confused on. She’s got a adequately put-together life. Maybe not as alluring and blatant as it would’ve been had she ashore with him, but a lot bigger for her.” Still, not as alluring doesn’t beggarly there’s no glamour. For the bedchamber breadth the four Roy ancestors battle it out in Adventure 2, Carter busy the walls with images like Kendall’s babe assuming with the brand of Harry Styles. You can booty the kid out of Kendall Roy’s life, but you can’t booty Kendall out of the kid.
With its long, amid scenes, Succession is generally affiliated to a play. But as a TV show, it has an added arrangement of accessories to buck its story. Details like appearance and adornment are essential, but they’re additionally static. Blur and TV are dynamic, which agency Succession doesn’t aloof accomplish a point with what it puts on screen, but how its cameras move through the spaces on display.
“Our way of alienated abundance porn is beneath in agreement of area picking—we aces at the absolute top of the market,” Ferguson says. “It’s added in agreement of how we shoot it.”
That’s breadth abstracts like Capone appear in. Like Carter and DeTitta, Capone came aboard afterwards the pilot, which was directed by Adam McKay and acclimatized the show’s signature style. Not aggregate on Succession is filmed with a handheld camera, but its brand attempt is a afraid fidget, zooming abruptly in and out as combatants barter zingers. The bound focus magnifies the performances, arena up the micro-expressions and baby gestures that abstracted the acceptable from the masterful. There’s a acumen the show’s acclimatized us so abounding GIFs of burning acknowledgment shots; they’re the show’s beheld aliment and butter.
Just as important as what’s larboard in, though, is what’s larboard out. The Succession zoom is the arctic adverse of the slow, abiding pan that marks the archetypal affectation of wealth, authoritative abiding the eyewitness drinks in every detail of an over-the-top array.
In a accidentally barbarous arena from the Division 2 premiere, we see the agents of Logan’s alleged Summer Palace agilely adapt an busy meal, abandoned for the Roys to get pizza and let the accomplished barbecue go to waste. Succession’s set architectonics is absolutely accepted here—along with set decorator Ana Buljan and art administrator Carmen Cárdenas, both Carter and DeTitta acclimatized Emmy nominations for their assignment on Division 2—but its camera behaves analogously to the characters on screen, around shrugging off the adroitness that went into authoritative these admirable things, and embodying the Roys’ blah entitlement.
“We anticipate of it as photojournalism, like a fly on the bank to these billionaires that accept no abstraction how abundant their lives absolutely are,” Capone explains. “The admirers sees these peripheral, admirable sets and locations, but we don’t ambush on them. We don’t ambush on the clothing. We don’t ambush on the jewelry. It’s aloof there. And it’s aloof taken for granted.”
The West Wing may accept affected the walk-and-talk, but Succession puts the address to absolute altered use. Breadth the political ball underscored the adventure of a propulsive, fast-paced atmosphere, Succession focuses on its casting at the amount of the apartment they’re affective through. The Roys don’t stop to aroma the roses, so Succession doesn’t either. “The aboriginal time I came to New York, I was attractive up at all the buildings. Now I don’t,” Ferguson says. “We amusement it like an acclimatized area because for Logan or Kendall, this is every day for them. They don’t get absorbed by how adorned or big-ticket it is. They’re aloof activity about their business.”
At times, Capone admits, he has his assignment cut out for him. Aback you’re cutting in littoral Croatia or breathtaking Tuscany—the locations of the finales for seasons 2 and 3, respectively—how do you accomplish it assume like annihilation beneath than the paradise it is? “We’re not a Merchant Ivory movie, although we were in locations that could accept been in a Merchant Ivory movie,” Capone says. “All the time we’re saying, OK, how do we accumulate this off center?”
But clashing their air-conditioned interiors, the acclimatized apple doesn’t appear pre-tailored to the Roys’ expectations. Mylod, Capone, and their aggregation debris to accomplish altitude added adequate if they end up cutting in the rain, like at the Lake Placid resort that hosted the fabulous Argestes summit, or aiguille summer heat, like in Croatia or Tuscany. They don’t use fly swatters to booty out cruddy insects, or booty pains to put the casting in a adulatory light, accurate or metaphorical. (The yacht scenes, for instance, were filmed at midday, with the audacious sun anon overhead. Golden hour it wasn’t.) It’s not a amount of abasement the idyll—just crumbling to abate the risks that appear with advertisement oneself to the elements. Aback the Roys hit the attenuate snag money can’t fix, Succession makes a meal of it.
Not every amateur on Succession is as Method as Jeremy Strong. In advancing a faculty of unease, however, the appearance can becloud the band amid aerialist and performance. Clashing abounding TV shoots, Succession doesn’t breach shots into masters and coverage, staging and re-staging a arena from several changeless angles. Instead, every arena is filmed in one connected set-up, generally with camera operators ambulant the attic as honorary ensemble players. “Sometimes in the handheld, aback you’re that abutting to an actor, they feel absolute physically uncomfortable,” Capone says. It’s alarming to be empiric at such a basal remove, or alike aloof to assignment in a way an amateur isn’t acclimated to. “Our messiness keeps the actors aloof a little bit off kilt,” he explains—an atmosphere on set that bleeds into the show. Actors can’t acknowledge the atmosphere aback they’re squirming with anxiety, and neither can their characters.
It’s a acclaim to say Succession is, in some respects, beneath than the sum of its parts. The appearance combines deluxe homes, clandestine jets, and unparalleled advantage into a baneful cocktail that’s the adverse of enticing. No one would accept to be a Roy, alike if it meant inheriting all their advantages. That’s in ample allotment due to the bodies amenable for carrying how those advantages attending and feel to those acclimatized to adequate them. Critics generally apply the abstraction of the macho or changeable gaze, a advantageous framework for how gender and female access a blur or appearance and, eventually, its audience. Succession suggests a agnate abstraction for class. Best shows about the affluent ogle their accouterments with the apparent backbiting of an alien attractive in. Succession buzzes with the hyperactive apathy of the cabal attractive bottomward at their fingernails. It’s beneath a boring than a glance.
