Fuse scored big when they secured the syndication rights to the hit talk show Last Call with Carson Daly. Carson’s history as a music fan was a perfect fit for the network, and his musical guests were exactly who viewers wanted to see.
As soon as the contract was signed, Fuse called NuContext and let us know Carson was up for just about anything. Fuse wanted to capitalize on Carson’s mega-star status and play down the fact that his show was already airing on NBC. Four brainstorming meetings and over thirty concepts later, we decided to show Carson as an “every man”, searching for his perfect match, like in a dating commercial.
Our teenage TRL dreams came true and Carson was a delight to work with. He admitted feeling a bit nervous about acting, since hosting is his main gig. But our director Declan Whitebloom made him feel at ease and a rockin’ day was had by all.
