Travel Channel Visits Hooker, Beaver

The rural community of Hooker was in the spotlight last week when a film crew from Los Angeles, Calif., came to town.
Eyeboogie Inc., contracted by the Travel Channel, made the trek to the Oklahoma Panhandle with a single purpose in mind: to visit towns with “interesting” names.
Bundled up for a chill that had taken over the area, the sunny California crew were ready and willing to learn more about Hooker and how it got its name.
“We’ve been to the Hooker Chamber of Commerce and spoken with Linda(Martin),” said Chad Gajadhar, Co-Executive Producer for Eyeboogie Inc. “She told us a little bit of the history of the town and the people.”
Martin, who owns and runs the local flower shop, is also President of the Hooker Chamber of Commerce.
According to Gajadhar, they will be traveling all over the country looking for towns like Hooker and Beaver
The Eyeboogie Inc., crew was in Hooker Feb. 28 and March 1. They then traveled to Beaver March 2.
Other towns are already getting a mention on the Travel Channel’s Web site include: Slaughterville, Okla.; Looneyville, Texas; Hell, Mich.; Sandwich, Mass.; Happyland, Ct.; Surprise, NY; Welcome, S.C.; Allgood, Ala.; and Little Heaven, DE.
As to when the show will air, Gajadhar isn’t sure yet.
He added that the likelihood Hooker and Beaver will make the cut for inclusion in the show are good.
