January 23, 2013 - In 2012, California State Parks entered into an agreement with the Lifeguard! Southern California TV show which airs on The Weather Channel. The filming took place at Southern California beaches during the summer of 2012.
The new series premieres Wednesday January 23 @ 9pm Pacific / 8 pm Central on The Weather Channel. The TV show chronicles various Lifeguard agencies in action throughout Southern California, with several episodes featuring State Parks' Lifeguards.
"The TV show does an excellent job showcasing the State Park Lifeguards' professionalism and dedication to saving the lives of our park visitors," said Brian Ketterer, the Orange Coast District Superintendent for California State Parks. "This program brings real-life stories to the screen, giving everyone an insight into the difficult, but rewarding job."
This is the second season of "Lifeguard!", but like last season, the first show kicks off with two back-to-back episodes and then one new episode each week after that. The first episode up is "Chaos at the Cove", which features a mass rescue in La Jolla Cove, a boat colliding with a personal water craft in Mission Bay, lifeguard tryouts at Huntington Beach, and a Huntington Beach rookie saving a man who falls from a pier.
This will be followed by the "Rip Current Rescue" episode, which features a harrowing water rescue at Torrey Pines State Beach by both San Diego and State Parks guards, and the effort to save a trapped parasailor at San Diego's Black's Beach.
When the show airs, sit back, enjoy, and watch your State Park Lifeguards in action.
