Come out & be an extra in a TV special

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - You are invited to be an extra today in the taping of a Mississippi television special in South Mississippi that will focus on tourism and the resilience of all of us who call the Gulf Coast home. Production crews will be in Biloxi this week filming the program.

Governor Haley Barbour says the CW Network will air the one hour special on August 27th, which will highlight the spirit of Gulf Coast residents and include celebrity testimonials, music acts and coast residents interviews.

This afternoon and evening at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum the production crew will be recording Ricky Skaggs, Ace Young and Kyle and Chris Massey. The taping will take place from three this afternoon until nine tonight. Everyone is encouraged to participate and tickets are not required.

But, Tuesday night's recording of Terri Clark, Bo Bice, and Lone Star, and hosted by David Hasselhoff, will require tickets. A limited number tickets for Tuesday's taping will be available to members of the public this morning starting at ten at the Coliseum Box Office. There will be a four ticket limit per person.

This television special is one in a series of initiatives the Governor's Office is putting together to promote the Gulf Coast as a tourism and convention destination.

WLOX News will be at today's taping at the Coliseum and we'll give you a preview of what's being put together later today on WLOX.com and WLOX News.
