ESPN Year of the Quarterback
The Year of the Quarterback: The Kickoff, is a one-hour TV show previewing ESPN’s year-long examination into the lives and careers of quarterbacks from high school to the NFL. Written and hosted by Chris Connelly, the special will introduce the Year of the Quarterback (YQB) and its goal to provide an in-depth exploration into the most discussed position in sports. Originally scheduled to air in mid-December 2010, scheduling changes called for ESPN to air the first episode on New Year’s Eve during the “Red Bull: New Year. No Limits” event to be broadcast from Embarcadero Marina Park South in San Diego. To accomplish this, ESPN turned to Planet Post and its professional video editing suites in downtown San Diego, conveniently located just minutes from the park.
Planet Post provided complete post services for ESPN, from Final Cut Pro and After Effects suites and editors to Post Production Coordinator and even transportation from the Planet Post edit facility to the ESPN satellite uplink truck positioned at the event.
