Although Four Peaks episodes become polished pieces of television art once they go live, the tapings are actually a production labor of love…one with makeup sessions, a plethora of wires and soundchecks that require a team of creative and dedicated professionals. Weber Shandwick Seattle’s partnership with UWTV afforded us an opportunity to sneak a behind-the-scenes peek. See for yourself:
