CBS SPORTS NETWORK KEEPING KITAY PRODUCTIONS BUSY
Kitay Productions, Inc. has completed several high-profile projects for the CBS Sports Network, a digital cable television channel, throughout the current school year. Some of the highlights include:
“College Football Confidential” – Kitay Productions produced four original, thirty-minute episodes of a series that saw our crew embed with a college football team for a week leading up to a key game. The show provided a unique, all-access, inside look as BYU, UCF, Wyoming, and Houston prepared for some of the biggest games of their seasons. This was the first new original series on the network in several years, and was very well received across the nation. After the four original shows aired, Kitay Productions created an hour-long “Best Of” summary episode.
“NIRSA NCCS National Flag Football Championships Presented by Powerade” – Kitay Productions sent three crews to College Station, Tex., to document the three-day tournament that crowns a national champion of intramural flag football. This material was produced into an hour-long documentary about the tournament.
“Bass Pro Shops Tournament of Champions” – Kitay Productions packaged and produced a complete tape-delayed game broadcast of one of the nation’s premier high school basketball tournaments, held in Springfield, Missouri.
“AT&T NABC Guardians of the Game Awards Show” – Joel Kitay produced a broadcast of the awards show in which the Naismith Trophy is awarded to the best player in college basketball, live from Houston, the night before the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship Game. Jimmer Fredette of BYU was the 2011 winner.
“Full Court Press” – Joel Kitay was one of four producers assigned to produce multi-hour blocks of this live studio show, providing live analysis and commentary during the first five rounds of the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship.
“Features” – Kitay Productions produced a series of short features on athletes and coaches in different sports, including Boston University, Boston College, and Miami University hockey, along with Dayton men’s basketball. These features aired in halftimes of game broadcasts on the network.
