Three film projects, including ‘Good Behavior,’ receiving grants

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) – The second season of TNT’s “Good Behavior” is eligible to receive a grant amount of $9 million when it returns to shoot in the Wilmington area.

The North Carolina Commerce Secretary and the Economic Development Partnership of N.C. announced today that “Good Behavior” is one of three productions receiving North Carolina Film and Entertainment Grants.

“Our state’s film professionals have an opportunity for work once again,” said Commerce Secretary Anthony Copeland. “I look forward to catching a glimpse of their talent as well as some familiar North Carolina scenery on the big and small screen.”

“Good Behavior,” the independent feature film “American Animals” and a national commercial for Audi will all be filming in North Carolina. Combined, the three projects are expected to generate a direct in-state spend of approximately $46.2 million. The productions will create more than 2,725 job opportunities in the state, including 208 well-paying crew positions.

American Animals is a feature film about a multi-million-dollar book heist. Production will take place in the greater Charlotte area. The eligible grant amount is up to $1.7 million.

A national television spot from Elite Commercial Incentives Services for Audi also filmed in the Charlotte area.  The eligible grant amount for the commercial production is up to $162,500.

“We look forward to showing off our state’s great assets including the work of our world-renowned crew base with these three projects, and are continuing to bring more opportunities to further showcase North Carolina,” added Guy Gaster, the North Carolina Film Office Director with the Economic Development Partnership of N.C.

The North Carolina Film and Entertainment Grant provides financial assistance to attract productions that will stimulate economic activity and create jobs in the state. Companies receive no money up front and must meet direct in-state spending requirements to qualify for grant funds.
