Communities of Distinction
The producers of Communities of Distinction had a vision for a show geared toward discovering what makes an area desirable to live, work, play, and visit. Is it economic strength, highly-ranked schools, top-notch healthcare, one-of-a-kind events, unique landmarks, or quality of life? What keeps lifelong residents from leaving, and turns newcomers into longtime residents? “We have found that often, it’s a combination of factors that make a city or town attractive,” said Paul Scott, Executive Producer of Communities of Distinction. “These are stories about all sorts of places in North America that, for their own unique reasons, are drawing new businesses, attracting families, professionals, and retirees, and establishing themselves as fantastic vacation destinations. It’s a glimpse into some of the most interesting and inspiring communities.”
North America is the world’s third-largest continent, spanning more than nine million square miles. Each region is different and offers something special. There’s the vibrant U.S. east coast, the charming south, the thriving heartland, the laid-back west coast, and the magnificent provinces and territories of Canada. Communities of Distinction explores the fascinating states, provinces, counties, cities, and towns that make up this vast land. These are places brimming with opportunities; places that people and businesses are proud to call “home”.
“We are taking a firsthand look and sharing stories about the very people, places, and things that make up the United States and Canada,” said Lisa Vrancken, Senior Vice President of Production for Communities of Distinction. “Viewers will be thrilled to see that we’ve covered locations of all sizes – terrific small towns and even some of the larger, well-known cities.”
In addition to concentrating on communities throughout North America, Communities of Distinction also explores the companies, industries, products, and individuals that make these places thrive. Communities of Distinction is filmed on-location in counties, cities, and towns across North America. The show is produced at their studios in Coral Springs, Florida. Communities of Distinction combines a team of talented producers, writers, editors and broadcast professionals to deliver the best in educational and informative programming. The show airs on a variety of well-known television networks throughout the United States and Canada. For more information, please see the Distribution tab.
