MPT to produce promotional film about Ellicott City

Maryland Public Television announced today that it is going to make a film about Ellicott City that will "showcase the area for economic, residential and tourism development," according to a news release from the state-run broadcaster.

The station is characterizing the initiative, to be titled "Our Town Ellicott City," as its contribution to helping the area rebuild after the flood July 30.

"While MPT can't work on highways, health issues or heavy construction, we certainly can do television," Larry D. Unger, president an CEO of MPT, said in the release.

"We hope that sharing the stories of Ellicott City's history, attractions and quality of life, we'll be giving local businesses and government a useful promotional tool and providing residents with entertainment and education about their nearly 250-year-old town. The recovery from the flood will be just one element of the broader story about what makes Ellicott City special," Unger added.
