Yes, I am boasting here... Louisiana is the NEW HOLLYWOOD!!!
We have had soooooo many movies and Tv shows being filmed here it isn't even funny! While a friend was in town, we watched them tape a TV show called Memphis Beat across from eating at a local food place in LaPlace!!!
I have seen signs every where in the city for crew parking and makeup.
So yes, we are the NEW Hollywood!!!
Check out this article from USA Today about how Louisiana is becoming a go to state for film production companies!!
And it doesn't hurt that the number one movie right now will shoot back to back films of Breaking Dawn in my back yard, either!!!
