Behind the Scenes | Discovering Jefferson County

What does it look like behind the scenes of a local WPBS production?

DISCOVERING JEFFERSON COUNTY had to pause production due to COVID, but with safety parameters in place, the production team was able to film scenes this week in 3 Mile Bay at Turn Back Time Antiques.
Our cast and crew wore masks and worked at least 6 feet apart during the 2-day shoot at the antique store.

Actors were required to test before coming on set, and had their temperature taken each morning before filming began. Masks were removed when it was time to film scenes, and put back on when each scene was done.

Thanks to smart shooting, the crew was able to set the actors up 6-feet apart to keep everyone safe. All surfaces were wiped down afterwards, and plenty of hand sanitizer was on hand.

We were lucky to bring in a WPBS employee and his children to shoot a family scene!

We can’t wait to help you discover Jefferson County!

Stay tuned as we continue to work safely, with integrity, and with great faith that we can continue to deliver high quality, local programming, with every safety precaution in place.

When the fog lifts. I hope it will be soon. I know we will be smarter. I pray we will be kinder. When the fog lifts... We will need to look forward. We will need to look backwards. When the fog lifts... We will find clarity. We will see things differently. We will continue to help the less fortunate. When the fog lifts... We will all need to help each other. When the fog lifts...We will find a new peace... a new hope. Let us look beyond the fog. The fog always lifts.
This Corona virus looks scary... I had bought a vacation package already living in South Florida many months ago for the holiday to get away with my future wife to give her a break being a school teacher.. March 21- 27th heading to Orlando for 5 days and then that Freeport Bahamas on the Bahama Paradise Cruise Line for 2 day 1 night leaving from WPB..... What is recommended? Take it or not?
https://www.vox.com/2020/3/10/21171481/coronavirus-us-cases-quarantine-cancellation And yet they’re still promoting group functions in mass gatherings with their WPBS health & wellness festival! No one should attend this festival.
I live in Syracuse but you are the PBS station I receive with my antenna. Boom all of a sudden I am not getting it at all. Is there any reason this might be happening? I have auto scanned a couple times and after 10 years my favorite station is gone.
SEASON DEBUT For you “locals”, the first episode of Season 6 airs today at 1:30pm on WPBS-TV (Watertown).
Please give us more Sanditon. Please! It makes our lives better. It certainly makes my life better, I think about the heroes (Sydney and Charlotte mostly) all the time and smile to myself. Such a nice couple, love to watch them.
Today was the final episode for Season 7. Our granddaughter, Lauren was the “guest artist” and we focused on a “kids can paint, too” theme. I get MANY inquiries from followers asking advice on how to get their child started in painting, so I thought I would address those questions with this session. It’s more about bonding and making memories than creating a masterpiece, but you never know what will grow from that creative seed you plant. And it’s FUN! Since my studio space doesn’t afford the adequate elbow room and camera set-up space needed to accommodate two painters, the Gouverneur Community Center graciously allowed us to film at their location. So, THANK YOU, G.C.C! Also, I wish to extend a special “thank you” to the WPBS-TV crew; Tracy, Kelsey and Ryan, as it was a lot of extra work and extra gear to make this work. This will air on Season 7 in February 2021.
We had a fun time at last night’s Paint 🎨 & Sip 🍷 at the WPBS-TV Studio! Thank you to the attendees for supporting the station and public television.
When the WPBS-TV van is in our driveway it can only mean one thing! Filming another season! Yes, it’s hard to believe, but Series 7 is in progress this week. We filmed 4 episodes today! Ryan Proven and Tracy Duflo are great to work with. Tracy’s make-up skills took 10 years off me. Well, maybe 10 days..........LOL
I just saw bits of the program today about the ship that goes thru the Seaway and the Great Lakes. Is that going to aired again?
Glenda and I wish a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday to all!
