A commercial will be filmed Wednesday night in Taft, forcing a street closure.

City Manager Craig Jones said a portion of Center Street at 4th Street is scheduled to be closed between 5 p.m. and 1 a.m.

The second assistant director on the commercial shoot told Eyewitness News that they couldn't share details because of nondisclosure agreements. While he didn't say who would star in the commercial, he gave the impression -- intentionally or not -- that it was someone well-known.

The crew member said Taft was picked because it afforded them a couple city blocks for filming, which aren't easy to come by.
