AMERICAN PUBLIC TELEVISION TRAVEL SHOW TO FILM IN PUEBLO
“We uncover the world through the local artists, who show us their city through their creative points of view,” said Farook Singh, executive producer of the Voyager series.
“This is an amazing opportunity for Pueblo, and the Arts Alliance, which is helping, with others, to underwrite this filming,” said Susan Fries, executive director, Pueblo Arts Alliance. “There are a host of people involved in making this happen, in particular Pueblo County Commissioner Sal Pace. He heard that Pueblo was being considered as a possible location, jumped on the opportunity and brought the show producers to town. The only communities being filmed in Colorado for this season are the state-certified creative districts of Pueblo and Telluride.”
“Pueblo County has a lot of amazing things for younger, active tourists to see and do, but people who aren’t familiar with our community don’t know about them. This show will highlight some of the things that we take for granted, that aren’t found in other communities,” said Commissioner Pace.
According to Pueblo County Director of Economic Development Chris Markuson, the 28 minute segment will ultimately be picked up by approximately 98 percent of Pubic Broadcast Channels in the U.S. and more than 120 countries in the international markets, international inflights, cruise ships and hotels with a focus on the travel and lifestyle industry. The episodes are contracted to air nationally on Public Broadcasting Service (PBS), including Rocky Mountain PBS.
The Voyager is an ongoing lifestyle and travel broadcast series (televisions/cable, broadband and inflight) that captures the life and cultures of places with a lens on the lifestyle, arts and culture in a city, as told by the local artists through their creative.
