New Travel Channel series filming in Austin

The Travel Channel rolled into downtown Austin on Tuesday to shoot an episode of its upcoming summer series, “American Grilled.”

Austin is one of about a dozen cities that will be featured on the show, which pits four grill masters against one another with a chance to win $10,000 (and bragging rights, of course).

The show is hosted by David Guas, chef/owner of Bayou Bakery in Arlington, Va., and features celebrity and local judges in each episode.

“Four contestants test their epic backyard skills by serving up delicious and original plates that skillfully showcase the grill and embrace the amazing local flavors,” the Travel Channel said in a press release.

I’ll run my interview with Guas and more details about the Austin shoot later this summer. The series is tentatively scheduled to air in early July.
