Miami Airport Scores Its Own Travel Channel Show (Which Debuts Tonight)

October 2, 2012 at 4:47 PM | by | ()

Set your DVRs or create an iCal alarm as TONIGHT at 9pm EST The Travel Channel debuts their newest show, "Airport 24/7: Miami." It's only scheduled to run for 6 episodes, but the press release promises that viewers will see behind-the-scenes how airport personnel "fight terrorism, intercept drug smugglers, secure a presidential landing, manage severe weather and much more."

In case you need a little nudge over whether or not it's worth a watch, here's the details on the main people profiled:

The series spotlights the ensemble cast of nine airport personnel, and the challenges they face as they work to keep MIA running efficiently. The airport’s overall operations, maintenance, security and communications are the responsibility of Deputy Director Ken Pyatt. Customer Service and Terminal Operations are seen through the eyes of Division Director Dickie Davis, as she enthusiastically leads a large team that includes Operations Officer Heidi Anthony, Senior Agent Tony “The Mayor” Cooper and Operations Control Room Agent Darius Bradshaw.

The stakes are even higher for those who ensure passenger safety – on and off the ground. Security experts introduced include Director of Security Lauren Stover, Terminal Security Agent Ericka Middleton and Miami-Dade Police Officer Chris “Stretch” Rutledge. From the ground, Ramp Services Manager Albert Cordeschi is the ringleader that keeps all planes coming and going on time. These individuals of various backgrounds must come together to guarantee a safe and pleasant journey for the thousands of travelers passing through MIA daily.

Coincidentally, we'll actually be in flight during the premiere and will miss it...but that's what the internet is for!
