Charlie on the RoadAfter enduring budget cuts in Public Broadcasting, the Weird Florida show is about to take to the road again!

Already in pre-production, the show's crew will soon be traveling along the Sunshine State's back roads and byways in search of the strange and unusual. Set to film in May, the new episode will be titled, "Weird Florida: On The Road Again."

VTM productions of Miami will shoot the show in high definition and will be responsible for much of the editing. "Filipe Marrou is one of the best camera guys in the business," said Charlie Carlson, co-producer and host of the show. "Filipe can do both aerial and underwater filming and his films have aired on the Discovery Channel, National Geographic and the Travel Channel as well as PBS."

Adrienne Kennedy [ WLRN Miami ] will again be the show's executive producer with Mia Laurenzo as line producer. "Mia really does all the production work," remarked Kelly Roberts, Weird Florida public relations. "She keeps the crew on the road, makes the contacts and arrangements and manages the budget." According to Roberts, it costs about 50,000 dollars per one hour episode but takes two week's worth of road time to get enough footage for the episode.

PBS does not have an air date for the show at this writing, but it will broadcast first in Florida before being distributed through NETA to the national network.

So, what can we expect from the new episode? Here's a hint from producer, Laurenzo, who says, "No spoilers here--but how about something underwater three miles off Florida's coast (no how are they going to get Miss Isabel into a diving suit -- much less Charlie?), or something abandoned in the Everglades, or a character named Hong Kong Willie in Tampa, or ancient mysterious ruins, or perhaps something about water monsters and a haunting or two -- then top it off with a double ax murder in a swamp."

Pangea's, Scott Marlowe, our resident monster hunter has been tapped to appear once again in this new episode.  Other guest spots are still to be determined.

That sounds like a lot of weirdness packed into an hour. This time the show will feature more promotional souvenirs for veiwers and even a blog to keep fans updated.  Stay tuned for more details as they emerge!

Robert and TomOur crew took a weekend trip down to Brownville Park along the Peace River in March to take advantage of the low water level on the river in their hunt for new fossils to add to Pangea's collections and their personal fossil treasures.  The expedition began on Friday, March 22, 2013 and lasted three days.

On hand were Pangea Fellow, Tom Fry and his two daughters, Brittany and Kaitlyn, Dusty Steverson, Katie Brown from Disney's "Animal Kingdom," Nick Matter from Disney's "Hollywood Studios," Trista Shaw and expedition leader, Scott Marlowe.

"We had a blast!" says Fry.  Steverson adds, "Can't wait to do it again!"

On Monday, April 8th, Fry, Robert Reese and Scott Marlowe took a day trip up to Blue Springs State Park to check out the potential for a fossil trip there.  "The spring was great, " said Reese. "But, we didn't see any fossils."

Fry, Reese and Marlowe are planning some additional trips over the next month or so to look for some new locations for fossil hunts.  Fry will be headding up to Ginnie Springs in May as well.  The trio made a weekend excursion to Manatee Springs last fall and is thinking about a nature trip to Fanning Springs some time soon.

If you'd like to join the scouting party, get in touch with us!

Lady Isabel Cast as Curious Canine PDF Print E-mail

IssyIsabel, a full bred boxer, was just 10 to 12 months old when found half-starved wandering along a remote stretch of highway in Levy county, Florida. Full of parasites and fleas, she was a mere rack of bones when she became number 086 at the Starting Over Animal Rescue [SOAR] in Ocala.

"Issy" had no identification and no one claimed her. For over a month she was an anonymous inmate living among constant barks of abandoned dogs begging for a home. Then along came Charlie Carlson.

The star of Weird Florida: Roads Less Traveled, took her home.

Isabel was given a full veterinarian examination, vaccinations, and immediately underwent treatment for fleas, heart worms and other parasites. Isabel soon began gaining weight and treatments have been successful in returning her to good health. She has a lot of street smarts for having been on her own and a few old scars on her legs suggest life wasn't so good prior to rescue.

A very curious canine, Isabel is a people dog that loves to chase after lizards and sniff any bug.

The television viewers of the Weird Florida seriea are curious folks.  So, we know they will welcome Lady Isabel as the newest member of the Weird Florida PBS television family replacing the recently deceased canine companion to Charlie Carlson, Miss Scarlet.

If all goes according to plan, you'll be seeing Lady Isabel, the Curious Canine, in the upcoming episodes of Weird Florida now in production.
