Delray Beach, FL, May 14, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- For eight seasons, “World’s Greatest!...” has educated and entertained viewers across the country by showing them the best and brightest companies, products, and places that the world has to offer. From Boston to Bangladesh, from Moscow to Miami, “World’s Greatest!...” has seen it all. And they’ve taken you along for the ride!
“We’re very excited about our 100th episode,” said Gordon Freeman, Executive Producer of the long-running series. “When I look back, it’s amazing to think about all of the places we’ve been and all of the compelling stories we’ve been able to share with our viewers. We’ve been inside Fortune 500 companies and we’ve met innovative new companies that are changing their respective industries. Our viewers count on us to make exciting television and it’s a responsibility we take very seriously.”
Every episode features a variety of segments, each of which covers a different category represented by a unique company. After producing over seven hundred segments on various companies, it’s still just as exciting today as it was when the show first launched.
“I remember our first season and how nervous I was every time a new episode would air,” said Robert Baccarie, a senior producer. “I remember wondering if we’d be able to do justice to some of the incredible companies we were featuring. It wasn’t until after about the third episode that I was able to sleep soundly. The feedback we got was incredible. The viewers were happy, the companies were happy, the crew was happy. And it’s only gotten better. I feel like we’ve been able to maintain a level of excellence for eight seasons that’s pretty rare in today’s television world.”
With so many companies featured over the years, it’s tough to narrow it down and pick favorites. Each company is selected based on criteria that is set by the Executive Producers. Overall reputation within its industry, impact on the average viewer’s life, visual appeal, and on-camera expertise are all things considered as part of the selection process. And it’s not always easy to pick just one company to represent an entire industry.
“Some of our production meetings get pretty heated,” said senior producer Darrin Willhite. “It’s not uncommon to hear raised voices and pounding on the table as researchers and associate producers lobby for their favorite companies to be picked for the show. We all understand that we’ve got a show to make, but at the same time we all develop a personal attachment to the companies that we’ve researched.”
So what does “World’s Greatest!...” plan for the next hundred episodes? More educational and entertaining programming that is sure to capture the viewer’s imagination and explain just what makes the companies featured…..the World’s Greatest!
