FOOTBALL PARTNERSHIP WITH COMCAST SPORTSNET
Kitay Productions has been contracted by Comcast SportsNet-DC to enhance CSN's 2006 college football coverage in the mid-Atlantic region through two new initatives.
Part one of the agreement called for Kitay Productions to produce, in its entirety, a live-to-tape television broadcast of the first three home games played by the University of Maryland. Kitay Productions provided all mobile facilities and technical crew members for these three games, and provided the live direction as well. Comcast SportsNet talent and graphics were used in each telecast. The University of Maryland was also a partner in these broadcasts, gaining television exposure for games that would not otherwise have been broadcast. Each of these three Maryland games aired in primetime, the day following the game.
Part two of the agreement calls for Kitay Productions to edit down various other network broadcasts of games involving Maryland, Virginia, and Virginia Tech, for a replay showing on Comcast SportsNet. Certain broadcasts are shown within 12 hours of their actual completion. Kitay Productions provides all editing services, including facilities and labor, to complete this work for Comcast SportsNet.
