"As you probably know, the newspaper business is not in as great a shape as it once was," says Arnold. "So there are huge sections of The Baltimore Sun’s building that are empty, basically." Which made the paper’s historic Calver Street offices a perfectly appropriate setting for the fictional Washington Herald. "We built the offices for Lucas Goodwin and Tom Hammerschmidt, and we built a little lunchroom," says Arnold. "We dressed the whole thing with spaces for each person with all of their paraphernalia."
