    CHESTER — A Chester woodcutter is one step away from having his own reality television show.

    The New York Television Festival selected Barre Pinske’s, “Carved in Vermont,” last Monday as one of their top five finalists on the A&E Channel. Pinske’s was one of 25 semifinalists vying for chance to appear on a major television network.

    According to Pinske, the finalists will meet with directors, producers and major network representatives at the NYTF and pitch their ideas to them one last time. The other pilot shows selected were “Dirt Track Outlaws,” “The Location Scout,” “The Mayor of Malibu,” and “Tornado Alley.”

    “Carved in Vermont” features Pinske and Chester area woodcutters Brianna Schaefer, Brian Jewett, Jessie DeRosia and Chris Bolen. It shows the ups and downs and fun and frustrations of woodcutting, complete with jokes, gags and Vermont humor.

    The NYTF will take place from Oct. 21 to Oct. 26. The winner will be announced by the end of the year.
