They’re here! To everyone’s delight, the newest batch of Jane Lynch Illinois Office of Tourism spots have been released.

Last month Reel Chicago gave our readers a heads up that Chicago’s favorite tour guide, Jane Lynch was back in town both in front of the camera and in the director’s chair on a four day commercial shoot with her team from STORY

The results are a fresh batch of fun with Jane.

The theme this time? Christmas in Chicago of course. And on that subject… Chicago was just voted by Buzzfeed as the #1 Best Place in the US to Get in the Holiday Spirit.

So let’s see what Jane has to say about it.

From agency, to production, to post, these spots not only make Chicago shine, but they are 100% Chicago Made.

Jane Lynch was the director for STORY. The Executive Producers were Mark Androw and Cliff Grant. Marsie Wallach was the line producer and Mary Langenfeld was the Production Supervisor. 

Angela Coster from OKRP, was the Creative Director and Art Director. There’s a full list of credits below.

This same winning creative team from STORY and OKRP accompanied Jane Lynch in her directing debut last year in the Illinois: Middle of Everything campaign that brought home the U.S. Travel Association Mercury Award for Best Public Relations Campaign.

I believe I speak for all of Chicago when I say, we cannot get enough of Jane Lynch!
