Amazing Race Alum Louie Stravato In-Studio
Amazing Race alum and Providence Police detective Louie Stravato joined me live in-studio to talk about a new scripted project hes been cast in. Working with fellow Rhode Islanders, Newport, Rhode Island: The Series will bring to life the paintings of world renowned, local artist William Heydt. Heydt has produced hundreds of watercolor paintings of the local people and landscapes of Newport over the past twelve years in his series Newportant People. Stravato plays real-life cobbler Hans Polanski who is an unaware millionaire. Other stars include reality TV shows alums like Richard Hatch. Richard will be in a lot of different episodes said Stravato. Hes like a back ground character type person. He will be like the Alfred Hitchcock of the show.
The series begins filming soon and will be released via outlets like Hulu and Netflix to start. For more on the development and concept behind, Newport, Rhode Island: The Series click here.
Take a listen to my chat with Louie Stravato about his most memorable, Amazing Race moments, his jump from reality to scripted TV and why hes not slowing down anytime soon.
