From an article at the NaplesNews.com we have news that Discovery Networks has begun filming a pilot starring veteran skunk Ape investigator David Shealy.
The production company, Authentic Entertainment, has confirmed they are filming in Florida , but producers aren’t commenting on the making of the show.
David Shealy’s been trekking through the Everglades for 35 years looking for the skunk ape.
This week, he’ll have company.
A film crew from California-based Authentic Entertainment, the production company behind reality TV shows Ace of Cakes (Food Network) and Flipping Out (Bravo) is in Ochopee to begin filming a pilot reality show intended for Discovery Channel in the fall.
Shealy, curator of the Skunk Ape Research Headquarters, has appeared on other shows about the legendary skunk ape, a yeti-like creature adapted to the wilds of South Florida, including “Unsolved Mysteries” and “The Daily Show.”
He calls the Discovery Channel pilot the biggest project he’s worked on.
