A live action, fast paced and exciting television show filmed right in Baltimore will air on Maryland Public Television at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 20.

Perfect for families, “The Great Aquarium Treasure Hunt” follows the fictional students of South Town Middle School on the coolest class field trip of the year to the National Aquarium in Baltimore. But there’s a catch: Science Teacher Mr. Hedgeman has turned it into a treasure hunt. The show has local actors including Bob Heck, who was Bob the Vid Tech on MPT’s children’s programming for nearly two decades.
