As winter sets in across the country, Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa will bring a little tropical sunshine to "Live with Regis and Kelly" viewers, as "Live" heads down to the Bahamas for four shows from Atlantis, Paradise Island, November 27-30, 2007.
The visit is a return trip for the popular morning show, which last visited Atlantis in 2002. This time around, "Live" will broadcast from a location adjacent to The Cove Atlantis, the brand-new resort area within the spectacular ocean-themed destination.
"The shows we produced from Atlantis five years ago were great fun, and the backdrop of the resort was absolutely gorgeous," said Michael Gelman, Executive Producer, "Live with Regis and Kelly." "We're very excited to have the chance to return again this year. It's a spectacular location, and now there are lots of wonderful new things for us to do, both on land and in the water."
"We are thrilled to have Regis and Kelly back at Atlantis," said Sol Kerzner, Chairman of Kerzner International. "Since they were here last time, Atlantis has grown, adding exhilarating water experiences, including a waterpark and dolphin interaction. We know our stunning beaches will be the perfect backdrop for Regis and Kelly to bring some much needed sun into their viewers' homes."
