Here is a look inside our control room in Italy. It is located two flights underground near the "Today" show set in Piazza San Carlo. It used to be a storage area for a local store. What it looks like in this picture is the result of hard work by the production managers and crews. Hope you all have been enjoying the shows and these vlogs. We have been having a lot of fun.
