Masini shops for ideasA new series of television programs designed to showcase Hawaii is being developed by April Masini, president of Masini TV & Film Enterprises.
Masini wants to delve into "the secret places and unusual features distinct to Hawaii," rather than the usual beaches and touristy spots.
Masini TV is accepting ideas, true stories, places of interest and concepts from Hawaii residents. Ideas can include an underground scene, a haunted spot, or a little known, first-rate restaurant.
Masini said she is working in conjunction with Discovery Communications Inc.'s Travel Channel to develop the shows.
Send ideas by email to email@example.com or by mail to Hidden Hawaii Suggestions, c/o Masini TV & Film Enterprises, P.O. Box 3790, Beverly Hills, CA 90212-3790.
Label all pictures or attachments, and do not send originals because submissions will not be returned.
