Producers of a new PBS reality show called “Getting Away Together” are looking for a group of friends and/or family to spend six days on vacation. According to the official website:

The show aims to highlight “the rapidly growing trend of sharing a vacation with friends and family. From girlfriend getaways to family reunions and milestone celebrations, the series shows diverse groups of real travelers vacationing together in some of the most fascinating destinations and staying at spectacular vacation rental properties across America.”

The deadline for this round is May 15. A panel that includes the Garrett County Chamber of Commerce will sift through the initial applications, searching for good stories from groups who must explain why they are unique and why they need to get away together.

The show producers will make the final choice. Selected applicants must be at least 24 years old and available for filming Sept. 6 -14.

The winners will have to provide their own transportation to and from Deep Creek Lake but once they arrive, luxury accommodations, dining and activities will be provided.
