HBO Series Approved For Tax Credit

by

(Detroit, MI) -- An HBO series set in Metro Detroit has been approved for a Michigan film incentives tax break. "Hung" will get a credit of about one million dollars while the production will spend an estimated two-point-six million in the state. The series' first two seasons were shot primarily in Los Angeles and partially in Detroit. This season is slated to have more scenes shot in the region. In the Detroit Free Press "Hung" star Thomas Jane says, quote, "It's an absolutely essential part of our show that we see where these characters come from, that they come from the heart of America, the city of Detroit." The fate of the film incentive hangs in the balance with Governor Snyder proposing cuts to the program and an annual cap on tax breaks.
