LAKE CHARLES, La. (May 10, 2013)- In January, Authentic Entertainment was in town for a week working with local realtor, Nikki Pruitt, on TLC's "My First Home," set to air June 1 at noon. 

Pruitt took clients Brandon Varnado and Artie Brown, both Louisiana natives, around town to over 40 houses searching for the perfect fit for the couple.  Producers also shot scenes at Petro Bowl and Nina P's.  In a serendipitous moment on set, Varnado proposed to Brown!

The Southwest Louisiana Film Commission, an umbrella organization of the Lake Charles/Southwest Louisiana Convention & Visitors Bureau, was involved in location scouting.

"My First Home" follows potential home buyers through the highs and lows of their first home purchase.  For more information on the Southwest Louisiana Film Commission, check out or call 337-436-9588.  For more information on TLC, log onto
