Seattle - Husky fans are invited to a special premiere of The Washington Football Experience, a new weekly 30-minute show on Fox Sports Net Northwest that provides an up-close look at each Washington football game. The premiere party will be held Thursday, Sept. 5 at 6:30 p.m. at the Ram Restaurant in University Village.
The show's narrator, Rick DuPree, executive producer Jon Horton and other key personnel from the program will be in attendance at the event. They will take questions, hear feedback and discuss the making of the program. Some of the topics will include the Experience concept, the use of sound and the mission of the project.
This week's Michigan game brought up many challenges for the Experience production team including how to handle a heartbreaking loss while giving Husky fans a reason to watch the show. "Whether it is a victory or a defeat, you will find a reason to be proud of your team," says the show's Executive Producer Jon Horton. "On the first show, we will present many stories that fans will not have heard about extensively. It will be these stories that people will talk about as the next game approaches."
The RAM Restaurant and Big Horn Brewery is located at 4730 University Village Place NE, Seattle, Washington. For directions, call the Ram at (206) 525-3565.
The Washington Football Experience premieres September 5th on Fox Sports Net and will air every Thursday night throughout the college football season.
