US Coast Guard – Back on the Small Screen

US Coast Guard – Back on the Small Screen

By On March 15, 2012
COAST GUARD ALASKA Following on the success of “Coast Guard Alaska”, The Weather Channel and Al Roker Entertainment announced a new docu-series to be called “Coast Guard Florida” earlier today. Scheduled to premiere in October 2012, the show will follow the men and women of the 7th Coast Guard District as they conduct operations aimed at protecting Americans on the sea, protecting America from threats delivered by sea and protecting the sea itself. “The response to ‘Coast Guard Alaska’ demonstrated the public’s interest in seeing good people do good work on behalf of the nation in a magnificent part of the country,” said Capt. Ron LaBrec, chief of Coast Guard public affairs. “Operating out of Florida presents a different set of challenges for our service and ‘Coast Guard Florida’ will provide the American people with another insider look into what it wants from its public agencies – important work, done competently and efficiently by dedicated and inspiring public servants.” Showcasing Coast Guard men and women operating out of Florida means introducing a whole new set of Coast Guard missions including ports, waterways, coastal security, drug interdiction, and border security in addition to the heavy dose of search and rescue and environmental protection missions the “Coast Guard Alaska” audience has already come to associate with the nation’s oldest continuing seagoing service. Scheduled for thirteen episodes of 60-minutes each, “Coast Guard Florida” will premiere one year after the launch of “Coast Guard Alaska.” The Weather Channel has already announced plans to air a second and third season of the show that introduced millions to Coast Guard Air Station Kodiak and will continue showcase personnel hard at work at Coast Guard sectors, stations, patrol boats and cutters standing the watch over Alaska’s 44,000 miles of coastline on a daily basis. “Coast Guard Florida” will have a very different look and feel as it highlights operations and missions from three different stations in southern Florida. “‘Coast Guard Alaska’ is one of the projects I’m most proud of as a producer,” said Al Roker, president and CEO of Al Roker Entertainment. “The United States Coast Guard is an awe-inspiring group of men and women and we feel privileged to give viewers an inside look at the courageous acts they embark on every day in serving our country. ‘Coast Guard Florida’ will allow us to continue to tell their stories.” This article was originally written by Christopher Lagan for Coast Guard Compass.
