BOSTON (AP) — Yankee magazine and Boston’s public television station are teaming up to launch a new travel and lifestyles show exploring New England.
“Weekends With Yankee” is set to premiere nationwide on public television stations in April 2017.
The magazine and WGBH say filming will get underway later this month on 13 weekly half-hour episodes.
The producers say the documentary series will take viewers on “an insider’s exploration” from cities to far-flung countryside across the six-state region, which is a top destination for tourists from around the world. They say it will focus on unique attractions and “the hidden New England that only locals know.”
Emmy Award-winning TV travel host Richard Wiese will serve as a guide on the show.
