Southwest Airlines Gets a New Reality TV Show in 2012, Just Like Snooki

If you're passing through concourse A or B at Baltimore/Washington International Airport this week, you may find yourself in front of a camera crew.
TLC is expected to begin filming a new untitled TV show about the inner workings of BWI's largest carrier, Southwest, today. The new series will follow BWI's expansion and the day-to-day drama that happens behind the scenes at Southwest.
"It's a good opportunity to showcase BWI and the region," said Jonathan Dean, airport spokesman. "With BWI as one of Southwest's largest markets, it makes sense to shoot it here," he added.
A&E's 2004 series Airline also followed Southwest employees through their day, but TLC's take on air travel will give viewers a more in-depth look at the industry.
Though cameras will have access to all of the airline's facilities, including its gates, BWI insists that the filming won't cause any delays.
The new reality series will debut on TLC sometime in 2012.
