Malibu Chronicle went behind the scenes with writers, directors and Wisconsin natives, David Zucker, Jim  Abrahams and Jerry Zucker (ZAZ), September 19, 2013.   Producing for advertising agency Laughlin Constable was Los Angeles-based production company Crestwood Lane Productions.  Producer Ron Luscinski a Malibu local invited us to the set.

This was a happy reunion for the creative team, writers and directors, who originally filmed “Airplane” in 1980 and who now have teamed up once again to direct “Airplane” stars Robert Hays and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in three new 30 second TV commercials for the Wisconsin Department of Tourism.It was great to be amongst such a creative team. These TV spots once again brought smiles to all of us on set and will certainly bring smiles to your faces when they air in 2014.  You may just want to plan your next vacation to Wisconsin.  Visit www.travelwisconsin.com.  article by JC Cadena
