See Lifetime's Factory on Live TV!

Studio 5.JPGLights, camera, action!  It has been another exciting week here at Lifetime. On Monday, Lifetime was featured in a Made in Utah segment on Studio 5, KSL's local lifestyle show.  The hour-long show featured a pre-recorded segment (starring yours truly) that was filmed in the Lifetime Store, as well as three live segments with host Darin Adams in our factory.  

Studio 5 is doing a week-long series to show products and companies that are made in Utah. We were honored they decided to start with Lifetime!   Filming the pre-taped piece was SO much fun. Studio 5 Producer, Stephanie, was a blast and great to work with. She was very creative and full of energy. Who knew sipping lemonade on a Lifetime Glider Bench would be so fun? 

For the live segments, the KSL camera lady, Jen, showed up about 10:00am to get things set up, find a broadcast signal since it was live television (which has got to be such a nerve-racking job), and finalize details. Stephanie and Darin arrived at about 10:40am, asked a few questions about the company and products, and did a quick run through of each segment... then the count down was on for the live show at 11:00!

Darin did a fabulous job at showing off Lifetime and our products. He started by showing some of the actual products we make, then he headed to our folding chair assembly plant to watch the chairs being assembled.  We decided to have the host Darin talk with  Adam and Najah (our LEAN production trainers) since they both started in production and know a lot about our production process. They both did a fantastic job on their TV debut!  

For his final live segment, the host had a folding table assembly race with some of our workers.  This is where we were quickly reminded that part of live TV is learning to roll with the punches.  During the table race, Darin almost got hit with the moving parts on the rack because he stepped through the rack and didn’t step up far enough. Yikes!  (Watch closely, you can see it on camera in the final clip below.)  Luckily, he didn't get hurt!

We've read some wonderful comments from viewers who were thrilled to learn that Lifetime was located in Utah and to get a live look at how our products are actually made.  I could tell you more, but it's really much for exciting if you watch the actual clips from the show.  There are three separate clips, so be sure to watch them all.  Feel free to leave a comment below and let us know what your favorite part is, we'd love to hear.  Enjoy the show!
