Behind The Scenes

Palmer & Pollack open for business


The dust is finally settling in Charlotte, N.C. after several months of construction.

Monday at 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. ET, ESPNU’s newest college football show, Palmer & Pollack, will debut.

The dynamic duo of ESPN analysts Jesse Palmer and David Pollack will be ushering in a new approach to covering the game on a brand-new set.

“So much work goes into creating each and every show, but a huge piece of the heavy lifting takes place in the weeks leading up to the debut,” said ESPNU producer Baron Miller.

“Set construction, video screens, lighting, cameras, audio enhancements, graphics, more lighting and any piece of the latest technology we can get our hands, the team’s worked hard to get into the set.”

Palmer & Pollack’s new digs was previously home to a six-year-old ESPNU set.

Construction began in May and while the installation took four weeks, finishing touches were still being made last week.

The duo’s home features 14 monitors.

“Nothing is ever a finished product,” said Miller. “The show will evolve each week, just like the football season, and viewers will see a similar evolution in how Jesse and David interact with the set.”

Thanks to time-lapse technology, however, Front Row was able to document the project from beginning to show debut.
