-- Films and TV Productions Generate $254 Million-Dollars in N.C. in 2013
Year-end projections show television and film productions had a direct in-state spend in excess of $254 million and created more than 4,000 well-paying crew positions for the state's highly skilled workforce. These productions created nearly 25,000 job opportunities (full time equivalent and temporary jobs), including talent and background extra positions, for North Carolinians. These numbers are the second highest in the industry's history for in-state spending by productions as well as total job opportunities created. Television series headlined production in North Carolina in 2013. The five major series include the summer's top show Under The Dome, this fall's breakout series Sleepy Hollow, the second season of Cinemax's top series Banshee, the third season of the award-winning Showtime series Homeland, and the final season of HBO's Eastbound and Down; all filmed in the state of North Carolina.
