Real Sports has been a staple of sports journalism for nearly two decades, garnering 23 Emmys, numerous Peabody’s and the prestigious Dupont Award. Mr. Gumbel takes on the serious side of sports, exploring a variety of issues over the years, and impacting American sports culture.
HBO wanted a fresh, organic approach so we designed an environment that says New York loft (with an amazing view) instead of tech-heavy studio. Warm wood tones and inviting décor complement the show’s emphasis on in-depth conversation. The result is a set that provides Bryant Gumbel with a comfortable, elegant space from which to address the serious side of sports.
