Television Show & Segments
Summer of 2007 Our Story Productions began airing "Our Story - Minnesota at it's Best" With a goal to share the lifestyle lead in the small towns of Southern Minnesota they developed a variety of segments that included history, music, health, faith, interior design, and yes even commentary. Much to their surprise towns & businesses from throughout the Midwest begin to contact them to see if they would do stories about their towns! With this expansion "Our Story - Minnesota at it's Best" became "Destination Small Town" The decision was made in order to draw more attention to their show and to increase their web presence they needed to add some humor. The first segment added was the soap opera spoof "As the Corn GROWS" The popularity of the soap lead to a number of talk shows spin offs, all supposedly produced by the television station (KLUK TV) located in the fictional Sweet Swine County. While viewers were entertained by the zany antics of the talk shows and soap opera As the Corn Grows, KLUK TV reporters and Sweet Swine County citizens would report in with stories about real businesses and points of interest they had visited in other community. Today with over 60 volunteers and a staff of four, OSP continues to air the TV show“Destination Small Town” in over 1,000,000 households on cable TV throughout the Midwest, as well as on their website, YouTube, Facebook and Pinterest pages.
