In May 29th, Bennett Media Studio was working again with NBC Universal and Hoda Kotb for a Dateline Story on teenagers getting cosmetic surgery. We have two interviewees Donovan and Connor, they shared their personal stories of getting plastic surgeries with the help from the organization "Little Baby Face". They were interviewed by Hoda Kotb. The shooting took place on the first floor, which has a performance stage, and the catacombs. Click HERE to watch the video.
For the last 2 weeks, we have been hosting the popular Food Network cooking show with master chef Bobby Flay called "Brunch @ Bobby's". In its 3rd Season here at Bennett Media Studio, this show really shines in its focus on the art and craft of making and hosting a delicious Brunch, which is a favorite ritual shared throughout the world. From Brussels, to Beijing, to New York, the concept of a convivial weekend daytime gathering of friends and family around comfort food is a tradition shared by almost every culture and in every country.
Bobby does not disappoint us. I have been trying his new recipes, and spirited cocktails he invents for this daytime event of feasting and munching, chatting and sharing with friends.
