When Orlando-based Adrenaline Films was tapped to co-produce The College Tour a year ago, the team — made up of a strong contingent of UCF alumni — knew it was only a matter of time before they would get to tell UCF’s story. UCF will anchor a one-hour episode as part of the series’ third season lineup, airing on The College Tour app before the end of the year and streaming channels, including Amazon Prime and IMDb TV, by February 2022. Each episode is dedicated to highlighting a college or university with tour guides that include students, faculty, staff and alumni. The series is hosted and executive produced by former The Amazing Race winner Alex Boylan, who was inspired to start the show when his niece could not tour during the pandemic while she considered colleges in high school.
“I’m excited to show people just how cool and unique UCF is as this major metropolitan university with amazing opportunities here in Orlando. I feel so lucky to have the opportunity, and that’s partly due to UCF and the education I received and the connections I made there.”Martin Olarte ’12, supervising producer of The College Tour and former UCF adjunct
