Huntington, W.Va. (AP) -- Residents of a city dubbed the nation's unhealthiest are looking to have their questions answered about a new reality tv show set in their hometown.

A public meeting at Huntington City Hall is scheduled for Wednesday night to discuss the abc show being filmed in West Virginia's second-largest city this fall.

Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver, the show's host, is scheduled to be on hand to answer questions from residents about the show's focus and how it will depict Huntington.

A 2006 report from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention named the Huntington metropolitan area the unhealthiest of 150 studied.

ABC says the show is intended to highlight the importance of healthy eating and lifestyle choices.
