Commercial Casting!

Seeking individuals to be featured in a commercial.

We will feature Louisianans with skilled jobs who attended a two-year university or certification program or taken a career and technical educational pathway and who are now planning to surprise their family or loved one(s) with an amazing gift or experience. For example, surprising their partner with the honeymoon they never had, paying off someone's student debt or loan, or buying a service dog for a person in need.

This is a paid commercial and will film possibly in July, or August 2016 with some flexibility dependent on the candidate.

The candidate must meet the following criteria.

  • Be able to complete the surprise in July or August 2016.   Have a job they love.
  • Have attended a Louisiana two-year college, earned a certification or credential, a NCCER or AWS approved program, or taken a career and technical educational pathway to attain their current job and career pathway.
  • Be willing to let us film their special surprise moment to air on TV.


This is for real people with real stories. You and your story have the chance to be the example that will inspire fellow Louisianans to achieve their life’s calling.

Example careers that the candidate could include the following: paramedic, welder, process technician, med tech/ physical therapy assistant, employees in oil, gas, plastic, healthcare, technical or other skilled trade.


Production will come to you and film in your Louisiana town.
