By J.J. Smith. The producer of the NBC-TV program “Friday Night Lights” is looking for volunteer extras July 16 and 17 at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas to play the part of fans in an upcoming episode.

According to a spokesman for the Rockwall Community Playhouse, the producer will pay the Playhouse $20 for each volunteer who shows up representing RCP.

Only men, women and children over 10 years old are needed and will be paid.

Participants will be expected to stay 6-10 hours either or both days during filming.  The start time is not yet determined and filming might last as late as 10 pm each day.

Box lunches, snacks and drinks will be provided, as well as giveaways and raffles for prizes, for volunteers throughout each day. Actors in the series will also appear.

Teen members of the Playhouse are preparing now for their production of “That’s Entertainment” which will run July 30-Aug. 1 and Aug. 6-8.
