Reed Rigging Hooks Starz' Boss

Reed Rigging-Boss Poster Chicago, Illinois – Chicago-based Reed Rigging provided production rigging support and hardware for the series shooting and promotional campaign for Season 2 of the award-winning Starz drama series Boss starring Kelsey Grammer.

Season 2 of Boss wrapped at Cinespace Chicago Film Studios last month and will premiere tonight on the Starz channel. “There's no better city in the world than Chicago,” said Michael Reed, Reed Rigging's founder and owner, “to portray the ruthlessness and drama of the political machine.”

Boss stars Kelsey Grammer as Chicago's fictional mayor Thomas Kane. Grammer won a Golden Globe for his portrayal. The city of Chicago provides the backdrop for this dark political drama.

“Reed Rigging is pleased and honored to be able to support the production of this show as well as to provide the rigging hardware for the menacing ad campaign blanketing print and online media in anticipation of the show's premiere tonight.”

Reed Rigging has been supporting film and television production in Chicago since its founding in 1993.

Reed provides catwalk and trolley systems to facilitate lighting, sets, cameras and sound systems.
