Posted: Updated:

MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News)- Monroe is getting a taste of Hollywood action.

West Monroe native Anna Zielinski is shooting a movie in the Twin Cities, "Dancer and the Dame." Starring Billy Gardell from the CBS hit sitcom Mike and Molly.

Zielinski says a huge portion of the successful shooting has been in Monroe, she says it's all thanks to the city leaders.

The movie has been all over the Twin Cities shooting scenes for the movie.

In one scene they need staged groceries for a store scene.

The crew called the Northeast Louisiana Food Bank to ask if they could use some food. After being told the bank is low on resources, the crew decided to do something.

The crew will use the food raised in the movie and that food plus more will be donated to the food bank. Gardell believes it's only the right thing to do in Louisiana.
