Filming the opening sequence at Kualoa Ranch. Stunning!

What happens when you take one of MOJO’s most popular shows Pressure Cook with Ralph Pagano and shoot an episode in Hawaii? “Everyone here thinks its the best episode (of season two),” according to the show’s Executive Producer Sandy Green in a recent comment on my Facebook wall. πŸ™‚

The Hawaii episode airs October 6 at 3 p.m., 6 p.m., and 9:30 p.m. HST (according to TVGuide.com) and I can hardly wait. Sandy’s comments only make me more anxious to see the show.

It feels like it’s been so long since the completion of production on Oahu and Hawaii’s Big Island back in May. For those following my blog back then, you may have read about my experiences working with the production team here, here, and here.

It sounds like Hawaii will be well represented to a national audience of foodies and travelers. As you watch the show, be on the look out for the following industry partners who supported HVCB in this endeavor. Without these folks, none of this would have been possible: Outrigger Reef on the Beach, Hilton Waikoloa Village, The Shack Waikiki, Sansei Seafood Restaurant and Sushi Bar, Dave Miyamoto Photography, Pualani Hawaii, Makani Kai Helicopters, Kualoa Ranch, and Wailea Ag Group.

MAHALO TO YOU ALL!

I’m interested in hearing from those who watched the episode, so if you want to weigh in with a comment, please do so here. Hope you enjoy the show.

The production crew from MOJO network’s Pressure Cook with Ralph Pagano arrived yesterday on Oahu and I have the privilege of working with them this week on the filming of the Hawaii episode. It’s been a long time coming and it was good to finally meet show producers Sandy Green, Brian Reichelt, and Sunny Antrim of Helicon Media in person after many telephone conversations and e-mail exchanges over the past few months.

This is another quality show we (McNeil Wilson Communications) secured on behalf of our client the Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau (HVCB) as part of our public relations initiatives for the year to bring more national television shows to the islands.

I’ll be blogging about the production along the way, so fans of the show, stay tuned for a little “behind the scenes” coverage. In case you’re wondering, Ralph (also of Hell’s Kitchen season one fame) is one of the nicest guys (celebrities) I’ve ever met.

And if you want to watch the show online, visit Hulu.com where you’ll find all the episodes of season one.

Back in touch soon with an update.
