SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- ESPN has pretty much taken over Scottsdale this week as Fan Fest draws huge crowds brimming with Super Bowl fever!

Scott Pasmore caught up with one of ESPN's senior producers, Seth Markman. He talked about the effort it takes to produce a big sports week like this!

Markman says he and his crew enjoy shooting in Scottsdale. "I'm a huge Scottsdale fan; Arizona in general," he says. "That mountain over there? Every time I come here I think, I want that mountain in our shots!"

He says ESPN has a major presence in town this week. "We have over 500 people here from ESPN," he says. "It's quite an undertaking."

"This is a two-year process for us," he continues. "We were out here for the first time two years ago to scout the area and come up with where we want to base our operations."
