Nick Mollé Walk In The Park Series On Rocky Mountain PBS
On Saturday night September 27th at 7:00 p.m. the television series “A Walk in the Park” will begin a thirteen week run on Rocky Mountain PBS, KRMA Channel 6. The series, created by local producer Nick Mollé, first aired on Rocky Mountain PBS in September of 2007 and was repeated three times during the fall, winter and spring television seasons. Because of its success across the state of Colorado, it has been added to the PBS schedule for another year in their prime 7:00 p.m. timeslot.
“A Walk in the Park” features several of Nick Mollé Production’s finest works on Rocky Mountain National Park. The series kicks off the first three weeks with “Real Rocky” parts one, two and three which features an in depth, insightful and sometimes tongue in cheek look at the National Park. It is followed by two episodes of “Estes Park, Gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park” and then goes on to feature more hiking, wildlife and a climb up Longs Peak. One episode is dedicated to Estes Park’s sister city, Monteverde, Costa Rica.
Rocky Mountain PBS has millions of loyal viewers in Colorado. This is tremendous exposure for the community and business establishments in Estes Park. Television audiences up and down the Front Range in all the major cities will view these shows and be invited to come and share in the beauty and natural wonders that surround Estes Park.
This relationship between RMPBS and Nick Mollé Productions would not be possible without the support of underwriters who contribute to production costs. This year’s underwriters include Rocky Mountain Gateway, The Town of Estes Park and National Park Village. Nick and his staff are extremely grateful to these organizations.
Nick Mollé has operated Nick Mollé Productions and EPTV Channel 8 since 1994. Over the years he and his station manager Jennifer Proffitt have created numerous documentaries quite familiar to Estes Park residents and visitors. Nick has often enlisted the collaborative efforts of his longtime friend and talented Denver producer John Goerner.
In addition to the Rocky Mountains, Nick and John have traveled to many locations in Alaska and Central America to create the series “WildSide with Nick Mollé”. In the spring of 2009 “WildSide” and “A Walk in the Park” will be released to a national PBS audience through American Public Television. More information on the national distribution will be presented in a press release later this year.
Nick says he has been blessed by working with such a talented team, doing what he loves to do with the unending support of his family, while living in this phenomenally inspirational mountain location.
