HS TV and Video Classes Tour NBC Studios thumbnail161406

Selected high school students from James Connell’s broadcast television class and William Lackner’s video production class recently toured NBC Studios in Manhattan, included behind-the-scenes looks into the studios where some of their favorite NBC shows are made, such as “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” “Saturday Night Live” and “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” as well as NBC’s fully restored art deco rotunda and state-of-the-art 4K theater.

Two NBC pages served as hosts, guiding the students through the historic halls of the building. The high schoolers learned about the television production process and had an opportunity to produce their own show at the end of the tour.

“This was a great tour for anyone interested in a career in TV production,” said Lackner.

“It was so fun to see the behind-the-scenes activities that take place to put on these shows, and the history of TV that took place and continues to take place there,” said senior Esther Singh. “The bonus was definitely the mock show we created. Everyone on the tour volunteered to be part of it, so we were all stars of the show.”
