Living in Los Angeles for the past 17 years and working in television and film for the better part of a dozen years, Greg Boghosian knows that Hollywood is entirely its own world.
Now he’s eager to get back to his roots and a world he’s just as familiar with on the North Shore — and tell a plethora of great stories in the process.
A 1988 Beverly High graduate, Boghosian has created a show, ‘The New England Traveler’, which is scheduled to begin airing on the New England Sports Network (NESN) Saturdays at noon in January. It will focus on the people, the places and the areas that make the North Shore, and all of New England, the civic jewel that it is.
“I’m really excited to get back to Boston and do this,” said Boghosian of his travel and lifestyle outdoor series. “It’s not my stories; it’s the people’s stories told from their perspectives. It’s going to be fun, entertaining, inspiring and educational.”
Boghosian, who has worked at CBS for the last eight years, plans on writing, filming and producing his shows locally. He’ll be shooting the pilot episode shortly and is hoping to film 8-10 episodes the first season, with more after that.
“I want to do a lot of North Shore stories, places I grew up,” said Boghosian, whose current job title at CBS is post production supervisor and on-air promotion and marketing. “I’ll be leaving (Los Angeles) to produce the show on a full-time basis.”
The idea for doing an outdoors show first came to Boghosian in LA when he was watching a show called ‘California’s Gold’ with local legend Huell Howser. “It was a show on PBS, one that was like comfort food to a lot of people in California,” Boghosian said. “He’s a guy who had this childlike wonderment and he’d go all over the state showing what made California so great.
