Fox Television Group chairman and CEO Dana Walden said if it’s renewed for a third season, “Sleepy Hollow” will move production from Wilmington following the demise of the North Carolina film tax credit program.
“We’ve explored other places to produce that show and I will tell you it came down to Atlanta and Vancouver and it looks like we’ll head to Atlanta,” she said following a news conference at the Television Critics Association winter 2015 press tour.
Last year, the N.C. General Assembly opted to let the state’s tax incentive program benefiting film and television projects expire. Lawmakers replaced it with a grant program that will dole out no more than $10 million total to qualified productions this year. The most each production can receive under the new program is $5 million.
