The official youth publication of the Boy Scouts of America announces new television show with Big Monster Entertainment.

Boys’ Life magazine, the official youth publication of the Boy Scouts of America, is working with Big Monster Entertainment, LLC to develop an affiliate TV show. The show, called “Scouting Around,” will focus on widely popular, fun, and informational subjects covered in Boys’ Life, appealing to relevant interests of both male and female teenagers. Three hosts will guide the show across the United States, exploring a variety of subjects and people in an entertaining, modern format.

“We are excited to lead the BSA into the next evolution of its television presence,” says Michael Goldman, editorial director of the BSA’s three magazines, Boys’ Life, Scouting and Eagles’ Call. “Bringing Boys’ Life into the homes of a new television audience helps us expand the reach of Scouting’s fun and values. After all, today’s readers — and viewers — are tomorrow’s leaders.”

Episode topics will cover a wide range of general interests and hobbies, including new tech, gaming, cooking, survival techniques in the wild, and relationship advice, to reach a wide breadth of teens. “Scouting Around” hosts will meet with pro athletes, politicians, entrepreneurs, culinary experts, and more to form entertaining educational segments around their expertise and experiences.

Executive Producers Lloyd Bryan Adams and Rudy Vegliante of Big Monster Entertainment will head production. Adams was also executive producer of “Scouting for Adventure,” a Boys’ Life TV series that just completed a five-season run on Outdoor Channel.

“I will promise to bring entertainment and excitement to this series,” Adams says. “We are now looking for broadcast partners that will share our vision and can realize the immense marketing and advertising opportunities the BSA and Boys’ Life can bring to this series.”

Big Monster Entertainment’s line-up will illustrate and deliver a program to involve teenagers in constructive and exploratory ways.

“I’m proud to be a part of ‘Scouting Around; this show is so varied it can’t be limited to one specific group of kids or topic,” Vegliante says. “I admire the Boy Scouts of America and what it stands for, and I look forward to creatively reaching out to teens of America in a way that will energize and inspire them.”
