From the Niagara Falls Review (the article says tomorrow, but it is actually today/Thursday):
The American Falls will have a morning show feel to them Thursday night.
As part of the Today Show’s 60th anniversary, NBC has arranged to have the show’s familiar red, orange and yellow colours illuminated on both the American and Horseshoe Falls, starting at 5 p.m. Footage will be shown on Friday’s Today Show, wrapping up a week of anniversary celebrations.
“We’re having the Empire State Building lit up here in Manhattan, the Bellagio in Las Vegas, the CIRA Centre in Philadelphia,” says NBC spokeswoman Monica Lee. “We’re glad that everyone’s joining from each area.”
Lee says Niagara Falls was a “natural” choice for producers to tap, and Today Show hosts have been hyping it all week. The colours will be displayed until midnight.
From the Travel section of the NBC Today Show web site (including photo):
Mary Umbricht of Seekonk, Mass., captured this beautiful photo of Niagara Falls.
Umbricht took the picture on Saturday while spending a long weekend in Canada. There was “a lot of color,” she told TODAY.com, and visibility was great due to no leaves on the trees.
Last week I received an email from the Fallsview Casino Resort.
From the Buffalo News (yesterday):
Greg Daniels didn’t want information about Jim and Pam’s wedding on “The Office” to flow like Niagara Falls.
In a recent interview, Daniels, the executive producer of the NBC comedy, lamented that “the promos had given away a lot of stuff” about tonight’s hourlong episode, titled “Niagara.” It airs at 9 p.m. on WGRZ-TV Channel 2.
Stars Jenna Fischer (Pam Beesly), John Krasinski (Jim Halpert) and Steve Carell (Michael Scott) made the NBC talk shows rounds last week to discuss the episode. NBC, which isn’t sending the episode to critics for review, didn’t screen the promos for Daniels.
From the Niagara Falls Review:
It was hardly another day at “The Office.”
The beloved NBC sitcom made a misty appearance in Niagara Falls, New York on Thursday, filming scenes for the upcoming wedding between characters Pam (Jenna Fischer) and Jim (John Krasinski).
Cast and crew rode the Maid of the Mist twice in the morning and once in the afternoon, surprising tourists who boarded the boat from the U.S. dock.
A Niagara Falls visit by the show had been rumoured for weeks, though no one knew where – or when – they’d arrive. But online rumblings told fans to keep an eye out Thursday, as production boarded a plane from Chicago to Buffalo that morning.
Maid of the Mist spokesman Tim Ruddy said it was a juggling act accommodating the show and the crowds, but it went “very smooth.”
“Of all the film crews and production crews we’ve had over the years, this was by far the most professional and easy to work with,” he said. “They were so appreciative of what Niagara Falls is doing for them.”
I know this was quite the buzz yesterday, but in case you haven’t heard it, here it is…
From the Buffalo News:
Lovebirds Jim Halpert (John Krasinski) and Pam Beesly (Jenna Fischer) will be heading to Niagara Falls shortly for their wedding this fall on NBC’s “The Office.”
Greg Daniels, the executive producer of the Emmy Award-winning comedy that is set inside the fictional Dunder Mifflin paper supply company in Scranton, Pa., confirmed here Friday that director Paul Fieg is currently in the Falls to scout out locations for the wedding.
Daniels said he “assumed” the wedding would take place on the U. S. side of the Falls, but wouldn’t be sure until Fieg finishes his scouting.
