The U.S. State Department contacted BMG to produce its first live, global town hall broadcast with Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton. The live production was shot at the Newseum in Washington, DC and featured live satellite feeds from England, Japan, Lebanon, Columbia, Nigeria, India and Australia. The studio facility in Washington, DC, as well as each international location, consisted of a host and a live studio audience. Audience members at each location were given the opportunity to ask Secretary Clinton questions related to recent world events. Additionally, viewers from around the globe were able to submit questions via Twitter and Facebook which were integrated into the live production.

Given only six days to pull the project together from start to finish, BMG went to work, managing all production services for the show. This included management of the studio facility, booking the technical crew, managing all video production equipment, booking all necessary satellite time and coordinating with each remote location on their live two-way transmission.
