I was intrigue, because my next job it could be a sitcom comedy. I know this not a "huge" challenge (about cinematography) like work on dramatic tv serie, where you have several locations... I was searching info and looking several lightning setups because i want to make a beautiful soft lightning over the main characters...
How i meet your mother is a good example. Then I found in a making of this interesting light i guess this could be a huge soft light creating an ambient light to the main characters and then completed with backlight and kickers.
What do you think about this sof light...
Thanks for the comments

i was lighting director on many sitcoms here in israel
my system was simple and yet very flexible
on every set i used as back light and side light 2k zip light and box them for spill( with aggcreat and additional black box i built around them)
then from the front i used bounce light from form core and skirt them from the wall with black fabric
then if i had window i put baby 2k to to give same light to came in like day light with 251/wd in it
then hock the practicals
most important was to have 2 small soft light on stands each one near the camera that take the CU for eye light
working on like 50%
everything hock to dimer board for control
and you are ready for everything day or night
and don't have to worry for boom shadow
if i had big set the i put 5k soft light and even 6k space light with skirt
i also light the backdrop with cyclight
if you want you can change filters from day to night
ask the production designer to paint the walls in more dark tone!!!!

Another thing is I just wanna test using a 5K light (perhaps some CTO) through window directly simulating the sun or the other option is put behind the set 2 5K on the floor and bouncing with foam core at the window edge simulating an ambient day light...
Anyway thanks for the tips
