New York City’s loss is Vancouver’s gain as Fox’s big budget sci-fi series Fringe is moving production here.
The change is also a homecoming for the show’s lead actor, Joshua Jackson. The Vancouver-born hottie plays an FBI agent who solves un-explained phenom-ena.
Fringe is actually set in Boston, but the first season was filmed in New York after that city offered better tax incentives as part of a $658-million US fund, according to Jaunted.com.
The incentive became so popular — Ugly Betty moved production to New York from Los Angeles because of it — that the money ran out Feb. 1, five years sooner than expected.
