A cable TV giant is apparently interested in Springfield.
The board that oversees the Prairie Capital Convention Center has ok’d negotiations with a New York City-based production company to film a pilot episode of a reality series.
“The focus of the show would be a combination of looking at the unique sub-cultures of people who have the interest and the staff of the center serving as the cast of the show that carries out last minute change-overs and odd requests” says General Manager Brian Oaks.
If an agreement can be reached, the pilot could be filmed in the next few weeks for the A & E network. If the green-light is given, a number of episodes will be filmed in the next year with the potential of airing on a number of cable channels to include TLC, the History Channel, and A & E.
