The SVG Podcast: Joe Lynch, Head of Broadcast, Electronic Arts

Inside the socially-distant production of Madden Bowl 20

In the absence of many live sports, major sports networks have turned to filling valuable linear air time with live esports productions. That includes at ESPN where, on their family of networks, Madden Bowl 20 programming has been spotlighted over the past couple of weeks.

On this episode of The SVG Podcast, we go behind-the-scenes of the socially-distant production of Madden Bowl 20 with Electronic Arts’ Head of Broadcast Joe Lynch. He offers a walkthrough of the new workflows his team needed to establish to make Madden Bowl possible and offer some tips for esports production in a COVID world.

This interview is conducted by SVG’s Chief Editor Jason Dachman.
