Wooing a TV Family To Jackson Hole

modern-family-poster

Jackson Hole may know sometime Friday whether or not it will be the site for the season opening episode of “Modern Family” next fall.  The episode features the family having a dude ranch-style vacation.  Members of the town and county Travel and Tourism Board met in a hastily-called meeting to determine if funds derived from the new lodging tax could be used to help defray some of the lodging costs to make the area more attractive to the production company.  Board Chairman Steve Price says the group authorized up to $50-thousand to assist in that area.  If selected, it is anticipated that certain landmarks of the valley would be featured in the show bringing highly valuable visibility to the area as a multi-generational tourist attraction.  “Modern Family” is broadcast on ABC Wednesday nights and is seen locally at 8:00 pm.  Price says nationally, the program reaches an estimated 15-million viewers and was voted the best show on TV by Critics Circle. The production itself is to be covered as a feature story by Entertainment Today.  Jackson Hole is competing with Steamboat Springs, Colorado for the production which would take place the week beginning August 1st.
