An MSU graduate has been chosen out of 27,000 contestants as a semi- finalist in “The Reel Deal” reality show. “The Reel Deal” is the first reality television show giving actors, directors, writers and composers the chance to create an indie film alongside a known film/tv star. It’s a multi-platform reality television show which will span across social media, mobile, web and traditional television distribution. Celebrity Mentors for Season 1 include Eric Roberts, Tim Russ, Don “The Dragon” Wilson, Judy Norton, Holly Fields and Dustin Diamond. .
A Flint, Michigan native, 36-year-old Christopher Bower moved to Paducah, Ky., with his family in 2003, and was quickly embraced by Paducah’s creative community. He has been acting and producing for the past five years. A graduate of Murray State University, Bower had little in the way of background when he ventured into filmmaking. Instead, he learned from those around him and on larger sets in Nashville and Los Angeles. In the past two years, Bower and his team have completed three feature-length films, “What a Pair,” “Clock Out,” and “The Dooms Chapel Horror.” He acted in all three, earning the leads in both “What A Pair” and “Clock Out,” which will be out of post-production later this year. He has also dedicated more time to honing his acting skills, and was cast in several shorts, a feature film and was featured on the television show “Nashville”.
Chris now needs the community’s votes to lock in his role on “The Reel Deal”. “I’m humbled to have made the cut of 154 finalists out of a staggering 27,000 entries,” Bower said. “Now, I need the public to vote for me online in order to secure one of the final 42 spots in the cast. I’m thankful for each and every vote.”
