A three-man crew for Galafilm Productions in Montreal, Canada came to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park on March 7, 2016 to begin filming an episode for the Travel Channel’s “Mysteries at the National Parks.”
They devoted the following day to interviewing individuals with knowledge about the secret underground military base beneath the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Among those interviewed was Mary Joyce, editor of this website and author of “Underground Military Bases Hidden in North Carolina Mountains.” After completing the interviews, the crew began filming a reenactment for the show.
According to Meredith Fowke, an independent producer in Montreal who did the research for this project, the episode was inspired by a Deep Throat Testimony on this website titled “Ex-military man exposes underground facility in National Park.” Then she read Mary’s book (R) for more information.
According to Fowke, the first season of “Mysteries at the National Parks” went over so well that the number of episodes for the second season was increased from eight to 12 shows. The new season will begin airing the first week in October 2016.
