We wanted you to know, we’re playing it safe, but we’re open for business. We have been working safely & remotely during the COVID crisis. We have guidelines in place to make sure all facets of a production can be completed in a safe and timely manner.
Thanks to the veterans on our team, we had our eye on this issue before any mandates. While in progress, we made the safe and necessary adjustments to work towards delivering the episodes of World Views latest production, Jeff’s Homemade Game Show. A BYUTV executive expressed their gratitude by saying in a recent Zoom call, "We're so impressed with how World View adjusted to this crisis. This show could not be more relevant to families than it is right now. Thank you for delivering on time." Delivered without COVID delay, this show is ready to air May 12, 8pm CT on BYUTV.
Even as business’s open back up, the need to take precautions will linger far into the future. We plan to continue to take the necessary steps so that our team, your team, and the subjects we work with have a safe and gratifying experience.
Be well, stay safe, and let’s make the most of this life changing experience.
When we produced this last year, we had no idea how relevant it would be today, because this show does so much more than just entertain. Airing May 12, 8pm CT, Jeff's Homemade Game Show challenges families to accomplish a common goal, playing random, active games that can be created at home using everyday household items. It's a series for everyone from 4 to 94 that shows the audience new ideas of how to have fun together. Watching the show inspires people to get up and play the games. There is no more relevant time to take a break from the serious issues that surround us, then now.
So as people either continue to social distance at home, or even as the restrictions begin to lift, everyone can use fun and productive ways to engage, collaborate, and come together outside of the digital space. Jeff's Homemade Game Show is the inspiration to do just that!

CHICAGO – April 23, 2020 A new TV game show, Jeff’s Homemade Game Show, is currently being produced in Chicago that promotes and celebrates family time – parents and kids working together, playing together and making decisions together. The show will premiere on BYUtv on May 12 at 8 p.m. CST.
Jeff’s Homemade Game Show turns a visit to a family’s home into a fun instant TV game show as the host, Second City alumnus Jeff Rogers, conducts various fun challenges using the family’s own household objects, locations and activities. Money and prizes are awarded for successfully completing a challenge. Items from Jeff’s actual garage are awarded to the family if they happen to come up short. Family members are asked to play games like Toilet Paper Relay where they pull toilet paper through the house without it breaking, Pillow tower, and Floor of Lava.
Jeff’s Homemade Game Show reinforces studies that show family time helps build self esteem in children, strengthens family bonds, develops positive behaviors, creates happy memories and helps parents and children reconnect. Most recently, the program received a Mom’s Choice Award, which recognizes the best in family-friendly media, products and services.
The first 10 episodes were filmed in the Chicago and Northwest, Indiana area. The show was developed by the creative and executive production team of Chicago natives Bob Kopach, Bob Maraist, and Jeff Rogers.
