In designing ‘Hello Tomorrow!’ on Apple TV+, Maya Sigel shoots for the moon

“Hello Tomorrow!” on Apple TV+ is a refreshingly inventive sci-fi series that premiered on Feb. 17 and focuses on a sunny, shiny future that never was, with its shady crew of traveling salesmen trying to hawk fake Brightside residences in a domed colony on the surface of the moon.

The 10-episode “Hello Tomorrow!” was created by Amit Bhalla and Lucas Jansen and stars Billy Crudup, Hank Azaria, Dewshane Williams, and Haneefah Wood as the unscrupulous grifters. It’s one of the most visually stunning of the new science fiction shows to hit TV in 2023.

With its hovercars, dog-walking robots, jetpacks, self-popping popcorn, video phones, and android bartenders, the show offers an alternative version of post-war America where technology evolved along a different path. In conjuring up this optimistic future brimming with possibility, production designer Maya Sigel (“The Girlfriend Experience”) drew from a number of sources to craft a believable playground for these fast-talking hucksters making their way in this wondrous world.
