Dead roll is a technique used in broadcasting and television programming when an event's broadcast is extended beyond its original timeframe and overlaps the next scheduled program. Once the extended program ends, the second program picks up at the point where it would have been in the timeline, even though the previous segment was never broadcasted. Dead roll is a reference to the "taped" program rolling offline while the first program is extended, so that broadcasting can pick up at the point of progress.
