Project Main Details

The Talent

What we are developing is a character instead of an announcer. He is a knowledgeable fan who would be talking sports at the bar with his buddies. He is the guy who is clever with a phrase or quip. He has a way with words...the kind of fan who holds court and everyone enjoys listening to. He’s optimistic but not afraid to talk realistically when it’s warranted.

The Style

This is a very conversational approach. It is comfortable and inviting as if it’s one fan talking to another. The conversation is clever and in the voice of the fan. It generates a sense of anticipation for the next game or show. We aren’t announcing anything...we are having a conversation with fellow fans. So our voice isn’t being an announcer.

The Copy

The script delivers the pertinent information as all promos do, just in our unique voice. It doesn’t need hyperbole, however it’s still delivers on being creative and clever. Our character is interesting so what he says is as well. The character can carry the whole script or can deliver a conversational tag that reacts to subject matter delivered prior by show talent. Fans wonder what he’s going to say next and yet they always know when their game or show is on when all is said and done.

The End Result

The unique delivery style will get the promotion noticed. It will be a reason to look up at the screen when the character is on. There will be a relatable tie between the ROOT SPORTS character and the fan because he speaks in their voice. The character’s approach, the conversational style, the insider knowledge and the clever writing will provide a memorable “We Are A Fan” ROOT SPORTS experience.

Script Details

Penguins vs. Panthers

Despite all the injuries this season, Dan Bylsma (Biles-Ma) has pulled the Pens together to punch a playoff ticket. While the Panthers…well, the only reservations they’re making are for tee times!

There’s new hope for a big improvement since Clint Hurdle has taken over the Bucs. And, we’re starting the season in Chicago, where the Cubs are still cursed!
