This year will be a record-breaking year for New York on television, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced today.
Shows like “The Good Wife,” “Smash,” and “Boardwalk Empire” already use the city as their show’s setting.
According to his office, 19 television pilots and five shows that became series have already filmed here this season.
Two more plan to film here, which would break the record for the number of television pilots filming in New York in a year.
So far, the record 20 pilots were shot during the fall of 2010 to spring 2011.
“New York is now the place to go for the film and television industry,” Cuomo said.
Cuomo lauded the state’s tax credit, which he said has made New York more attractive.
