Bark Park to be on MTV
The popular MTV Cribs series has returned for another season with a new twist & new name – Extreme Cribs. In this series, which debuted August 1st, family members take viewers on tours of their family’s unusual, weird & wacky dwellings. 2003 GHS grad Grant Lean, son of Frances Conklin & Dennis Sullivan owners of the Cottonwood giant beagle-shaped building, along with Sullivan’s grandchildren Logan Hudson & Elizabeth Coen, also former Grangeville residents, are the hosts for the15-20 minute tour of Dog Bark Park.
Filming was done in March by an 8-member MTV crew and was entirely unscripted taking thriteen hours to complete. Scenes were shot inside and outside the big dog as Lean, Hudson & Coen led the camera on a tour around the snowy grounds of Dog Bark Park explaining how it was to be a part of building, & then spending time, in the big dog. Coen, a 9th grader at Pullman High, says “ The filming was much harder than I thought & fortunately it was ok for retakes to be done” Hudson attends Colton High and says his favorite part of the shoot was when they were filmed having a snowball fight under the watchful eyes of the big beagle; that was really fun!”
Lean, who has followed earlier seasons of the Cribs shows, states, “the best part of the whole experience was seeing Cribs from the inside; how the cameras, sound, lighting crews worked with each other & us. During breaks in the action it was fun to visit with the crew. I can’t wait to see the show.”
Air date for the episode is this Friday, August 12, at 4:30 p.m.
