NBC says paparazzi can't find Shreveport

Originally uploaded by
NBC's Don Teague just wrapped a report on the growth of the film and TV industry in Shreveport. Intriguing story, and you can watch it here.

He said that Shreveport will entertain $300 million in production value during 2006. He also said the city is getting almost a dozen new productions for 2007. I don't dispute the facts (yet).

Quite funnily, however, Teague claimed, "For some reason, the paparazzi just can’t seem to find Shreveport on a map."

Um, then what is this picture of Jessica Simpson (on the set of "Blonde Ambition") doing on Perhaps it was snapped by a cartographer.

Do you know of a place where I can find info on where films are/will be filmed. My out of town family want to see some celebrities.

LOL! I thought that was so hilarious when I heard him say that too! I mean I know Shreveport isn't a city heard of as often on a national level as, say, New Orleans, but still, geez. Don't maps still exist? lol.

It seems that a large percentage of the national media thinks that Louisiana == New Orleans. Is it so hard to believe that there is a part of the state that was neither flooded nor damaged by Katrina?
