INTERACTIVE VIDEO SERIES
EXCLUSIVELY FOR TWITCH
CHICAGO – Stadium, the first 24/7 multi-platform sports network, today announced a new interactive series exclusively on Twitch. Partnering with Wendy’s®, Stadium will produce a five-part series that features college football players and coaches taking to Twitch to view and comment on a classic game they participated in.
“Fresh Look on Films” will be hosted by Stadium’s own Michael Felder as football stars join him to relive the highs and lows from a classic game and break down the action live. The five-week series will feature former Clemson RB and first-round NFL draft choice, CJ Spiller, former Miami return specialist and first team All-American, Devin Hester, former Boston College All-American LB, Mark Herzlich, retired Virginia Tech Head Coach and College Football Hall of Fame member, Frank Beamer, and former Florida WR and Super Bowl Champion, Anquan Boldin. Beginning October 25, 2018 and every Thursday following at 4:00 p.m. ET, a new guest will share game highlights with fans. Stadium will use the interactive features of Twitch to test viewers’ knowledge of the game with trivia, offering fans the opportunity to win fresh, never frozen beef* hamburgers from Wendy’s for a year.
“We’re incredibly excited to not only bring “Fresh Look on Films” to Twitch, but to have a partner in Wendy’s that completely understands our vision for this new, fully interactive series,” said Stadium Managing Director Adam Anshell. “The Twitch platform allows us to create a totally immersive experience for the fan while allowing users the chance to win a year of Deliciously Different® hamburgers from Wendy’s**. What could be better?”
“We’re excited for this innovative collaboration with Stadium and utilizing Twitch as a new way to connect with fans of Wendy’s fresh, never frozen beef,” said Wendy’s senior director of media, Jimmy Bennett. “We’re continually seeking opportunities to engage with our fans in an authentic and meaningful way, and this partnership with Stadium showcases exactly how we make those moments happen.”

The Wendy’s Company (NASDAQ: WEN) is committed to doing the right thing and making a positive difference in the lives of others.
