Kathleen McDonough, president of KLAD, the award-winning set and light design firm based in New Jersey, will have a duo role as producer and production designer on the new digital series, The Other F Word. The comedy centers around
four girlfriends, who are discovering that the angst of raising kids may be nothing, compared to the angst of starting a new chapter of their lives after the kids are grown.

As well, they have been involved in a variety of non-theatre related projects that included designing the sets of CNN’s The Larry King Show, and that of Fox News in Washington D.C. Last summer they were also responsible for creating the Budweiser Beechwood House, a VIP lounge area for the Budweiser, Made in America Monument Series that traveled from Liberty Island to Crissy Field in San Francisco.
