Greenfield Village Center Of Filming For New Web TV Show

DEARBORN (WWJ) - Greenfield Village in Dearborn is center stage for the basis of a new web TV show.

They are a mission to document Americana and prove that the American Dream is not dead so says former Entertainment Tonight anchor Jann Carl.

Carl is the co-host of "Small Town, Big Deal" along with Rodney Miller. They are on the 'set' of The Henry Ford Museum filming for two days.

"I literally stopped dead in my tracks because I saw just 'on the' ... and I saw a Winnebago and I went ... 'ohhhhh, it's Charles Kuralt's Winnebago,'" Carl told WWJ's Sandra McNeill.

She said she loves the period costumes worn by people on the grounds of Greenfield Village.

"We hope, by watching the show, people will sort of fall back in love with America - the American Dream again," Carl said of the upcoming show.

"We've been in Thomas Edison's think-tank, kind of, and his invention factory ... and we learned that the Model A came after the Model T," said co-host Miller.

Carl says the show is the antithesis of the Kardashians and the plan is this visit will provide enough material for their show for Carbon TV.
