Mayor Robert McMahon announced Thursday night that he received a request from producers of the Discovery Channel show "Today In America" to film in the borough.
The council didn't vote on a motion to approve the filming, but McMahon simply put it on the table.
"What I'm doing is just opening it for discussion," he said.
McMahon had only got word about a week ago, but has since spoken with producers from the show twice. At the Media Borough Council meeting Thursday night, McMahon announced that he and a few other council members will have an additional conference call with producers late Friday morning to talk details.
Since producers are on a deadline, said McMahon, the decision has to be made rather quickly.
But council members seem to think the 5-minute portion being filmed in the borough would be a good thing to put Media on the map.
"I really think it's something worth at least exploring," said council vice president Monica Simpson. "It is a well-known show in almost documentary-type format."
Simpson added, however, that the details of financing the project would need to be taken into account when making a decision.
The pros to allowing filming for the show?
"I think that right now Media is a magnet for the county," said council president Brian Hall. "This is a way of getting the word out beyond the immediate area. We can easily see Media becoming an attraction for people from Wilmington or people from Baltimore."
He added: "If it were to happen, I think it would be something that would be a great ornament for the town."
The show focuses on business and lifestyle news, and generally hones in on up-and-coming industries.
Any other details are unclear at this point, but be sure to tune in with Patch to get the scoop.
