I Klfr-Palm Beach Post-Times, Sunday, Nov. 10, 1968 MacArthur Productions Puts Area In TV Spotlight live audiences that "vacations have been rescheduled and rerouted just to see the actual show in progress." The show is taped three days a week, twice dally, using an outdoor set which Is shaped like a South Seas la- successful daily "outdoors" television show, according to MacArthur Productions, Inc., President Sherman Adler. Treasure Isle reaches over 93 per cent of the country, added Adler, and has become so popular with viewers and show (s?en nationally over ABC) called Treasure Isle, has been likened to a "daily post card from Florida," by viewers who write in. The show is taped daily at the Colonnades Beach Hotel on Singer Island and is the first Tourists by the millions en-Joy Southeast Florida each year, but MacArthur Productions enable millions to have by way of television a little bit of Florida and Palm Beach County each day. In fact, the daily television ceived many credits for the lechnical work it did on the "Johnny Carson Discovers Cypress Gardens" TV special show over NBC nation wide the hour before the Miss America telecast this year. "We have plenty of work for the future," Adler said, "and we now have the people to do a first class job. The nice thim; about our company Is that we're promoting from within. We have a Florida grown . . home grown . . . company." According to Adler, the production company is currently-working on a variety show "which will definitely be on in prime time and will be produced and taped right here in Palm Beach County, as well as other locales." The variety show pilot will probably be taped before the first of the year, he said. Art Stark, executive producer, and Producer-director Walter Miller are working on the actual show, Adler said, and the final format would be announced shortly. Stark Is executive producer for Mac-Arthur Productions. A children's show and the production of the Mike Douglas Show for two weeks In January are also part of the Mac-Arthur Productions' scheme of things, he explained. The Mike Douglas Show will be taped in many areas of Palm Beach County and will be shown nationally soon after. Adler said the company re v. J goon. Two giant mobile taping trucks and four cameras, each worth $85,000, make up the current complex. Adler says thousands of letters are received daily asking for Information on the show, requesting photos of the star John Bartholomew Tucker or simply seeking to enter the home-viewer contest which is run on each show. "Treasure Isle has broken every record that I know of in daily mail," Adler said. "Even the old radio shows did not draw viewer response like this one. Naturally a great deal of the mail mentions Florida and Palm Beach County so we know we're making an impression." The show is conducted by Tucker who guides three competing bathing suited couples through aquatic antics, all for the opportunity to dig for buried loot on the island. Most of the buried treasure chests contain cards Indicating what the contestant has won, but others have checks worth several thousand dollars. Adler said the success of Treasure Isle has prompted other program development by the new television production company and several new shows were planed. OF ALL PIANO MANUFACTURERS.
