HUNTINGTON BEACH...Surf City and its first-class Marine Safety team will be prominently featured on the June 21st broadcast of Masterchef on FOX TV.   On August 31, 2016, the entire cast and crew created an impressive, surf-themed makeshift kitchen on the sand to conduct the first field challenge for its Season 8 contestants under the watchful eyes of hosts Gordon Ramsay, Chrisina Tosi and Aaron Sanchez. 

This isn't the first time Masterchef has come to the City, but it certainly was a far more elaborate setup than in previous seasons and the production team was very happy with their experience.  The City's filming program, greatly enhanced by the addition of the online application and approval process in 2016, has continued to garner the reputation of being a film-friendly community, which has, in turn attracted scores of high-quality productions to think of Huntington Beach first when considering locations. Photo:HBPIO
