Hollywood’s David Zucker Will Direct Wisconsin’s 2012 Winter TV Commercial

The Wisconsin Department of Tourism recently announced some pretty exciting news: Hollywood producer (and native son) David Zucker will be directing a Winter 2012 Wisconsin Tourism TV commercial.

The campaign revolves around “having fun in Wisconsin.” And Zucker certainly knows how to create fun. He’s had his name attached as writer, director and producer on some of the most hysterical and successful comedy films in the last three decades: “Airplane,” “The Naked Gun” series, “Ruthless People” and the last two installments of “Scary Movie.”

The commercial will highlight both indoor and outdoor winter fun in Wisconsin. Currently in production, it will begin airing the week of January 9, 2012 in various Midwest TV markets. We “Shirley” hope to see some of Jefferson County in that commercial!
