“We are looking for folks that are proud of their hometown, from the South and who love to talk about it,” said casting director Mark Fincannon in a press release. “From teenagers to senior citizens, our goal is to paint a picture about what is great about living in the area of West Point. We are back in town to continue our search for the heart and soul of West Point.”
