re: How did Duck Dynasty get to be a show?Posted by Geaux Smoke on 12/29/12 at 5:48 pm to Dodd
I'm sure the LA movie tax/incentive played the biggest part. I would guess A&E approached them off of their DVD's. the LA movie tax/credit is apparently ridiculous. Hence chootem', red jacket, Cajun pawn stars, etc...
They have Producers all over Louisiana looking for reality shows. We had a couple approach us at our place, but it never went anywhere. I wasn't sure if that would have been something I wanted to be a part of.
I've heard Willie and his wife shopped the idea to several networks and A&E bought it, you can tell by the way they focus on Willie so much on the show when in reality Jase and Phil are at the heart of that company and why it was first started IMO
