A Bastrop resident will soon be the focus of a web series on The Travel Channel.
"Girls Gone Bayou" will feature Lindsay Simmons Roberts, the daughter of Simmons Sporting Goods owners Jeff and Robin Simmons, on The Travel Channel's website in 10 minute webisodes. "We taped a lot of footage for a show about three years ago and I received an email last week from Jim Morley, who is the executive producer for digital video on the Travel Channel, stating they were moving forward with a web series," Roberts said. A film crew followed Roberts around for several months and she was able to introduce them to various locations throughout the parish including the Courthouse Square and several local businesses. A sneak peek of "Girls Gone Bayou" is already being aired on travelchannel.com and the first webisode is slated to be online Aug. 5.
