Keep an eye out for reality TV stars. Members of the Chrisley family from the USA series Chrisley Knows Best were filming in St. Petersburg this week, St. Petersburg-Clearwater film commissioner Tony Armer confirmed today.

It's not clear if they were filming for the next season of Chrisley Knows Best, but permits show that production was scheduled for Vinoy Park on Tuesday, where Bright Road Productions was set to film two cast members walking and talking in the park as well as a family conversation on a park bench.

The production company also pulled a permit to film in downtown St. Petersburg that is good through Thursday at 9 a.m. A person who answered a phone number for the production company confirmed that filming had taken place at Strands of Sunshine and La V restaurant on Central Avenue, but declined to say any more.

It makes sense that the Chrisleys were in town. Savannah Chrisley is set to debut her line of clothing line featuring inspirational messages, Faith Over Fear, this week on HSN, which is headquarted St. Petersburg. She'll appear on the home shopping network's The List with Giuliana Rancic on Thursday night at 9.

She also tweeted this on Monday.

On Tuesday afternoon, Todd Chrisley streamed a video on Facebook Live that included Savannah Chrisley and his wife Julie Chrisley. "We are in Tampa," Todd Chrisley said in the video.

He also mentions a new Season 6 of Chrisley Knows Best, which has not been announced yet by USA.

"Chrisley Knows Best is coming back. ... Season six has already been picked up," he says in the video, noting that the second half of Season 5 will air in September, and production will begin on a new season in November.

Chrisley Knows Best follows the lives of wealthy Georgia real estate mogul Todd Chrisley and his family. Season 5 was filmed mostly in Nashville, Tenn.
