92. Be An Extra On Friday Night Lights

I have been so excited to blog on this idea since day one but had to wait until the time was right – so here we go. The highly acclaimed TV series “Friday Night Lights” is seeks PAID, yes paid extras!

They begin filming  Wednesday April 7th and will film throughout the Austin Area until August.

 Throughout the years I have had several friends participate and all have said it was such a fun experience. I think most people love the idea of having their own 15 minutes of fame and Friday Night Lights is a pretty reputable show to say were an extra in. Who better to play extras in the a show about Texas Football than Texans!

I am a realtor here in Austin, and clients are always asking for suggestions on what to do around town. So, I thought I would blog about my experiences, recommendations and what you have to do before you can call yourself a true Austinite.
