Classic joke but it's also the premise of a sitcom being filmed right here in Rockford.
Actors and actresses lining up for their chance at a walk-on role in the pilot episode for "Between a Rock and a Hard Place". The sitcom is a creation from local actor Darren Marlar. And hollywood actor Stephen Baldwin thinks the Forest City is a great place to launch the new show.
"If we can get to where we're hoping to get to with the fundraising on the Kickstarter campaign, then at a bare minimum it would be cool to shoot the entire pilot independently right here in Rockford, that'd be awesome."
The sitcom centers around a pastor that inherits the bar across the street from his church.
