“My team had worked on the script for a few weeks with the ESPN Marketing group as well as Maggie Vision Productions, both based in NY. The script and concept went through several iterations and we really honed in on making it about Fantasy Football. We wanted it to be timely, topical and funny. We got Stiller, Mark Sanchez and LT on board and the entire Jets organization was really instrumental in making this shoot happen. It will air on ESPN and ESPN2 from 10/21-11/4 (opening day for our new comedy Tower Heist)”.
On working with Ben Stiller, Mark Sanchez and LT?
“It was great working with Ben Stiller, he was hilarious. We shot multiple lines so we could have alternatives for on-air and our digital spot. Mark and LT were really fun and easy going, they all got along great and talked shop between takes. It was such a smooth shoot because of all the hard work prepping for the big day.”
