No acting experience is necessary. The production team is looking to find hidden talent. Many featured and speaking roles have yet to be cast.

LOVES PARK (WIFR) – Loves Park man, Darren Marlar is joining forces with actor Stephen Baldwin to film the pilot of a new sitcom in the Forest City. Marlar stopped by “the blend” earlier today to talk about the developing show.

"We're doing it backwards. We're going to the people that we feel would support the show, would be fans of the show, and want to see something family-friendly, and we're saying, 'You step up and show us how much you want this and then we'll take it to the network,” said Marlar, creator of “Rock and a Hard Place.”

The Red Carpet fundraising event is at 7 p.m. Monday evening at the Radisson hotel. It’s free and open to the public.
Auditions will also be held that night. At least one person that tries out Monday night is guaranteed to have a walk-on role in the pilot.
