We partnered with Universal Destinations & Experiences to create the ultimate travel series as the tentpole program for their Discover Universal initiative, showcasing every aspect of Universal Orlando Resort from the perspective of two real people who’ve never been, along with the help of a theme park expert.
DEVELOPMENT + LOGISTICS
We collaborated with Universal to execute every aspect from start to finish – developing the show, research, scripts, casting, production, post-production, and GFX. Our aim was to inspire viewers and provide them with an authentic, fun, irreverent way to get all the necessary information to plan their next family vacation.
Our production team spent two weeks in Orlando filming at and around the parks – Universal Studios Florida, Islands of Adventure, Volcano Bay – along with dozens of restaurants and hotels on the property.
Our post-production team navigated the complex process of working with dozens of entertainment IPs in the parks, while creating the six-episode digital series, promos for each episode on every platform, and an overall series trailer with a custom graphics package. The series launched on YouTube, shared across social, and will continue to live on Universal’s O&O channels.
EPISODE 2: ISLANDS OF ADVENTURE
Paige and Jimmy come face-to-face with some of Hagrid’s favorite magical creatures, meet iconic Marvel Super Heroes, and find some great rides for their daughters in Seuss Landing. Jake even gets to be a first timer, himself, on the thrilling Jurassic World VelociCoaster.
EPISODE 6: THE WIZARDING WORLD OF HARRY POTTER
Jake leads Paige and Jimmy into the hallowed halls of Hogwarts castle, introduces them to six kinds of Butterbeer, and teaches them how the wand chooses the wizard at Ollivanders Wand Shop. Visit your favorite locations from The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade to Diagon Alley and in between.
The reaction from fans and viewers continues to be overwhelmingly positive, delivering on the brand’s objective to inspire viewers and provide them with an authentic, fun, irreverent way to get all the necessary information to plan their next family vacation.
