Travel Channel show to be filmed on Pensacola Beach
The Travel Channel is in town and shooting an episode for a new series called 'American Grilled'.
"It showcases our beach and casino beach is as beautiful as it gets," says Bob West.
The pavilion near Casino Beach is filled with camera equipment and a large TV crew.
"We are using locally sourced ingredients. Things that you can find here that are representative of Pensacola which is awesome," said celebrity judge Robyn Lindars.
Robyn Lindars is one of the three celebrity judges in the televised grilling competition. She says Pensacola has a unique atmosphere that is perfect for the show.
Bob West with the Santa Rosa Island Authority says this TV show is a good fit for the area too.
"We go back and look at the stuff online at all their media stuff. They sent us stuff to look at," West said.
He admits after the Island Authority was approached by the producers of the reality show: Party Down South, more research is being done before production companies are allowed to hit the beach.
