James Connelly was faced with a challenge: He had five weeks to build a barn. Not for animals or grain — but for hardcore crafters. And A-list celebrities. And a Hollywood studio's worth of production equipment. Oh, and it'd have to be entirely dismantled, flat-packed and put into storage — as if it were never there — weeks later. But he'd be the first to admit he brought this on himself, and he was more than up for the challenge. In the exclusive video clip above, James gives us a tour of what went into bringing that craft barn to life — and making sure it worked for TV.
He also filled us in on some surprising Easter eggs even the most eagle-eyed fans may not notice about the space. Here's what you'll have to look out for before catching the next episode which airs Tuesdays at 10 p. Really my whole life, our society has been involved in a pretty rampant consumerism, where, more and more, we surround ourselves with things that are made for us, that we purchase.

But it was a Halloween party, so I came as the devil. Nick—Did this feel like a pivotal career moment for you? Acting around Chicago while Amy co-founded the Upright Citizens Brigade, you also served as a master carpenter for the prestigious Steppenwolf Theatre Company. Meeting one of your closest collaborators during this period, you were also able to bring your two greatest artistic passions together. In hindsight, it was incredibly fortuitous. And I remember an immediate feeling of kinship, sort of a sibling sensibility—that if we played our cards right, we had the kind of gumption to get a lot done, with our sass and mischief.
Putting together your first unscripted series must have been daunting. Who did you turn to, as a guide throughout the process? Because it certainly is a beast.
Can you elaborate on your vision for Making It , in terms of format and tone? Poehler: I have to give a lot of credit to NBC. We really wanted this show to feel like an antidote to real life, to be the kind of thing that you watch with your kids that would inspire them, and get them to make something, and could kind of be healing in a cruel world.
So, it has all of that stuff without it being forced. And also, Nick and I refuse to jump out of a plane on our projects. Does this penchant for the positive and good-hearted inform your careers overall?
