While home to several popular genre shows such as Warehouse 13 and Being Human, the Syfy network has also been building a very unique brand of reality TV, specifically aimed at movie fans. The network debuted Face Off last year, where makeup designers compete against one another, and that show is about to get a great companion piece with Hot Set. This competition series pits movie production designers against one another, with each getting just $15,000 and three days to create the ultimate movie set. I recently had the chance to speak with Ben Mankiewicz, the host of this inventive new series debuting Tuesday, September 18 at 10 PM ET with "Crash Landed Astronaut, directly after a new episode of Face Off. Take a look at our exclusive interview to see what he had to say.
Hot Set episode 1.1, "Crash Landed Astronaut" stars Roger C. Ambrose, Greg Aronowitz, Carlos Osorio, Craig Pavilionis, Barry Robison, Thomas Brown, Ben Mankiewicz, Curt Beech and is directed by Michael McNamara.
