Upcoming lottery commercials filmed in Phoenixville

    The Pennsylvania Lottery got even more local over the weekend when producers filmed new commercials in Phoenixville.

    Crews came to Chester County Friday with their cameras, tents, food and props to shoot new TV spots. The Phoenixville Senior Center and Gateway Pharmacy provided some settings, but the bulk of the work was done at the home of Paul Slaninka.

    Phoenixville Patch reports Slaninka opened his Gay Street home to crews for filming in his yard. The guy is probably used to accommodating others, seeing as how he’s a board member of the Phoenixville Senior Center and Phoenixville Area School District.

    You can see the commercials in the next few weeks.
