Usually when I think of the Pineville/Alexandria area, I think of it as a place to stop on the way to Baton Rouge, but there's a lot more than that going on! Hopeful producers are in the process of filming a pilot for a TV sitcom called Rent-A-Ryde.

Want to be an extra and get your foot in the door of the Louisiana film industry? Bring a headshot or recent photo to the Westside Library in Alexandria Saturday, March 25th between 11am-2pm. You'll also need to prepare a 30-60 second monologue.

You can find out more about the project by visiting the Rent-A-Ryde GoFundMe page.

I for one am excited to see more filming in Louisiana. I think it's great for our state, bringing creative minds to our area and boosting our economy. Good luck!
