Vikings launching a live show with a studio audience at new Eagan headquarters

The new show will begin this fall on Thursdays.

Inside the Minnesota Vikings' Twin Cities Orthopedics Performance Center in Eagan is a brand new entertainment studio that will give fans a chance to be part of a studio audience for a soon-to-launch live show. 

Details about the new show at TCO Studios are few, but the plan is to host it on Thursdays beginning this fall, the Vikings say, without mentioning what the show will be all about. But in #BoldNorth fashion, we're guessing that it'll be about Aaron Rodg....football. 

As you can see in the photo above, the studio audience will sit in movie theater-style seating adjacent to the stage. 

Bryan Harper, the vice president of content with the Vikings, tells BMTN that there's space for 170 audience members per show. 

"With the opening of TCO Studios, we are excited about the new opportunities to deliver meaningful content to our fans," said Harper.

Harper oversees the Vikings Entertainment Network, which plans to produce more in-season features, player interviews and live streams, in addition to podcasts. 

The studio is 1,750 square feet with a main desk and video wall for traditional broadcasts, a casual seating area for relaxed shows, an 86-inch touchscreen, and three vertical screens that can be combined for unique stand-up programming. 

You can get a better look at the studio through this photo gallery from Vikings.com.  

It's not yet clear how people can get tickets to be part of the live studio audience.
