New gay reality show to be filmed in Oak Lawn

Cedar Springs RoadDallas is THE hot spot for fall television this year. Look for “Chase” on NBC and “The Good Guys” and “Lonestar” on Fox.

How much more of Dallas will America get to see? That depends on whether the pilot of a new reality show that will be filmed on the Strip gets picked up.

“Promoting Dallas: A Reality Show” is produced by Dallas promoter Roy Murray and will film in Oak Lawn on Aug. 27 and 28.

The producers wrote:

When it comes to promoting night life in the fourth largest metropolitan area in America, one can expect copious amounts of entertaining events, starlight-filled drama and beverage enhanced truths.

Roy Murray, event promoter of  Dallas, feels that it is time America had the chance to see the never-ending list of things to do to ensure an electrifying night out on the town, all while building a brand. Murray and his street-team of dedicated guys and girls have been promoters in the Dallas/Fort Worth area for the past 10 years. Roy was on of the founding members of 7connection before starting Black Knight Production. He was also the chairman of Dallas Southern Pride.

All these aspects give the show an edgy inquiry, but the quality attribute of the show is its niche market, all the taping and action  will all take place within the Dallas LGBT Community, ensuring a diverse look into what it takes to promote and entertain the most financially friendly demographic in Dallas.

“Dallas is known for its social scene but our community is literally the scene to be seen!” stated Murray.

Here’s the filming schedule for “Promoting Dallas.”

The Drama Room, 3851 Cedar Springs Rd., 6 p.m.-10 p.m. for Happy Hour
