My questions is:

Which is the role model in BBC, NBC, etc... of best lighting and good taste in this type of TV programs? ¡¡I need an image reference!!

Any advice and support in this subject will be appreciate :rolleyes:

Thank you very much in advance ;)

I would say that the "good looks" in situations like this is more on the set decoration and hair/wardrobe departments because to light shows like that you're pretty much limited to the big scoops (soft sources) coming from the top, and then some back lighting....the choice of the unit is up to one's resources etc. but you want to minimize shadows and contrast as it is considered more appropriate for the "on-camera talents"...
for film references I can think of Magnolia and Natural Born Killers...but again feature films are treated differently as you tweak your lights once you move in from wide-shots to close-ups etc. can you do that on your tv show?
good luck!

As said, lots of soft sources, minimal shadows (if any at all) and make sure the talent 1) looks younger and 2) is separated from the background and also doesn't melt Most studios I see 'round philadelphia with this are working with Kinos or other florescent fixtures.
