“Our efforts to bring Russia to life started as soon as the London torch was extinguished nearly two years ago, and it’s taken us all across Russia, thousands of miles of traveling from St. Petersburg to Siberia,” NBC Olympics features producer Matt Allen said in a statement.

“I can’t wait for our viewers to discover the Russia that we have.”

Expect to see stories about NBC Olympics’ research and production teams, the travels of the group’s features crew, and the technology used to broadcast the speed, sounds and visuals of the Olympics.
