Yes, we’re on TV again!

Los Angeles public TV reporter Huell Howser has set his sights on Alameda in a series called “California’s Communities.” The series, which is underwritten by the California Redevelopment Association, has so far featured redevelopment projects in a dozen communities over the past two years.

The show on Alameda, which, from what I have so far been able to glean, will feature Alameda Point, the Alameda Theatre & Cineplex and some of the painters who have been in town for Frank Bette Center for the Arts’ annual Plein Air Paintout, airs at 2 p.m. Wednesday on KQED, channel 9.

Howser works out at KCET, the PBS affiliate in L.A. His shows include “California’s Gold,” a 17-year-old running series that features stories from all over the state; “California’s Green,” about the environment; and series on the state’s water supply, parks and more.

Recent TV appearances for our little burg include a stint on HGTV’s “Halloween Block Party” and a trip to the cutting room floor for Anthony Bourdain’s “No Reservations” (it was online though), and the former Naval Air Station was used in an upcoming episode of NBC’s “Trauma.”
