"Key & Peele" premieres Tuesday

I'm starting to feel a little awkward about this sort of self-promotion but in this day and age, it seems like everyone is out tooting their horns every five minutes so I should just get over myself, huh?
Well anyway. The series I shot this past fall, "Key & Peele", premieres this Tuesday, 10:30 pm EST on Comedy Central. It's my first network series as the sole DP and it was a good one. We shot 53 sketches on location in 23 days, all with different looks--it sure wasn't easy, but we had the sense we were making good television so it was all worth it.
The first episode is the pilot which I shot on the 1DMKIV. For the regular season I switched to Sony F3's with the S-log function, which worked very nicely. The "live" wraparounds we shot on five iso'd F800's.
Plenty of former and present Steadicam pedigree on the show; Former Steadicam operators Chris Hood (pilot) and Denis Moran (series) operated A-camera, with Nick Franco handling B/Steadi for the series. On the "live" portions, Rob Vuona did Steadicam on the pilot and Maik Kuhne took over for the series. Unfortunately, Rob's fine work will never see the light of day as those segments in the pilot were replaced.
Check it out--the critical and public reaction has so far been very positive. There are a bunch of clips on Youtube, although only a few are from the show itself, the rest done by Comedy Central's web and promo divisions.
