I hope the Prison Break writers intend to have an episdode(s) set in Shreveport. This show takes place in states and cities all around the country. Even if nothing is to be set in the Shreveport, I wonder to what extent the production company might locate there. Is it temporary or for the duration of the show? I'd like to see people's opinions.
