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.

    How lucky are you guys in Huntington!? Jamie is my favorite chef ever! He's young, fresh, and makes things that are simple but great for you! Everyone says good-for-you foods are too expensive, but I bet Jamie has a few ideas that will get everyone in the family excited about eating healthier and show us we all can afford to eat better!
