In light of the recent global pandemic, Mission Control partnered with Telescope to host a biweekly Celebrity Jackbox: Games & Giving live stream in hopes to provide comical relief during this unprecedented time and raise money for various organizations helping to combat COVID-19. Every week, the hosts along with a new crew of celebrity guests (and surprise guest dogs) were brought in to play Jackbox Games while it simultaneously streamed to Twitch , YouTube , Facebook , and Mixer, reaching a variety of audiences on each platform. Viewers were able to play along, listen to humorous interactions among their favorite celebrities, and donate to charities such as World Central Kitchen, Children's Hospital of Pittsburg, Greater Chicago Food Depository, and many more. In addition to donations made by viewers, Jackbox Games made a donation of $100,000 to the featured organization each week, totaling to ONE MILLION in donations.

Telescope provided full remote production services as well as remote editing. Our operators were in close communication with the host through earpieces and remote teleprompters. Real-time comments were pulled from the stream where fans were given shout outs on air via the host, allowing viewers to see the live reactions from celebrities.

Viewers were able to play along and vote for their favorite celebrity guest answer while they were able to watch the reveal of the winners and losers of interactive Jackbox Games in real-time.
