We often have clients in town at the same time who have major television appearances. At The Brooks Group we like to end the year with a BANG. Over the next few days we are working on 11 television segments for our clients from The View and Today Show to Good Morning America and Access Hollywood Live ....if you factor in that it takes at least 10 hours to work on each segment, that's a whole lot of Brookette power.
First up is a major new show launch with Guy Fieri (www.guyfieri.com) and Rachael Ray (www.rachaelray.com) called RachvsGuy. Since I worked with Rach for many years, it's extra exciting to have the opportunity to work with them together. They are two of the busiest people I know so coordinating their schedules was no easy feat. With only a day and a half of them together for television, we were responsible for executing a joint appearance on The View, Guy on Good Morning America and 4 co-hosting shows on....what else...Rachael Ray. Here are a few behind the scenes pictures at The View, GMA and Rachael Ray:
Catherine McCord (www.weelicious.com) ended the year with a segment on Access Hollywood Live, Good Morning America Health and LA's KABC-TV with a range of delights from her waist-line friendly cookies for Santa and Chocolate Orange Snaps to her Holiday Snowballs (aka Mexican Wedding Cookies) and Almond Cookies, Catherine thinks of every detail on the table. She even made a plate for the reindeer ... celery and carrots for them of course.
Reed Alexander, one of our newest clients is in town to meet with a few editors and appear on Today Show, Good Day New York and FOXNews.com's Live show. While Reed is best known as Nevel on iCarly (www.iCarly.com), they will soon find out what a culinary rock star he is becoming - www.kewlbites.com.
NJ Housewife Teresa Giudice (www.teresagiudice.com) is crossing the bridge to NYC to shoot a holiday segment for Better TV and an appearance for The Nate Berkus Show that will air in February. On Better TV (which airs 12/20) she's making her Devil Shrimp with Angel Hair Pasta in celebration of Festa dei Sette Pesci, the Feast of the Seven Fishes. Check out Teresa on set prepping for her segment:
Jacques Torres (www.mrchocolate.com) is bringing the crew from New York's ABC Eyewitness News behind the scenes of his chocolate factory where he'll show how he creates his beloved holiday chocolate molds. Who can pass up these Santas and snowmen?
Chef and entertaining expert, Heather Christo (www.heatherchristo.com) headed from Seattle to Orlando to shoot 2 segments with the syndicated morning show, Daily Buzz (www.dailybuzznation.com). Heather showed off some great edible holiday gift ideas for one segment and will teach you some simple, but super thoughtful craft gifts for everyone in your life on an upcoming show.
We are excited for the year ahead. Over the next few weeks keep an eye out for Gretta Monahan (www.grettaluxe.com) on Access Hollywood Live, Guy Fieri on Leno, Michael Schlow (www.michaelschlow.com) on Today Show and Bruce Bozzi (www.thepalm.com) on Better TV as well as some huge book and show launches.
