‘Homeland’ Moving Production to Virginia

Jul 12, 2017 Author: Gabby       Category: Homeland       Replies: 0

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 7th season of Homeland is set to film in Virginia, US. Alex Gansa, the showrunner, and Terry McAuliffe, current governor of Virginia, have released statements about the move, and you can read them below.

The Showtime drama is relocating production to Virginia for its upcoming seventh season. Filming will begin in the Richmond area this fall, with the network eyeing a 2018 premiere. The Emmy-winning drama starring Claire Danes and Mandy Patinkin, which was renewed for seasons seven and eight last August, returned to the U.S. last year to film in New York after spending the two previous seasons shooting in South Africa and Berlin.

“We’re thrilled to bring the production of Homeland to the great state of Virginia. Its cities and neighborhoods and people will surely provide a rich backdrop for our story, and we in turn aim to provide a small but hopefully significant boost to the local economy,” said Alex Gansa, who serves as the showrunner and executive producer of the Fox 21 Television Studios series.

With the move, the show will be eligible to receive a film tax credit and grant from the state. The exact amount is unknown but will be based on the number of Virginia workers hired, goods and services purchased in-state and deliverables, including Virginia tourism promotions. Virginia is the only state to offer both a tax credit and a grant as part of its film incentives program. The state gives back 15 percent of qualified production spending (20 percent for filming in economically distressed areas), plus 10 percent on resident labor (or 20 percent if the project spending exceeds $1 million). A discretionary grant also is available.

“We are delighted to welcome this outstanding drama to the Commonwealth,” said Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe. “The film production industry is a significant economic driver for our Commonwealth. With every new film or television series that comes to Virginia, this thriving industry continues creating jobs, generating tourist activity and building momentum for even more great new projects. Having hosted shows like Turn: Washington’s Spies, Mercy Street, and now Homeland, it is clear that Virginia is a premier television production location, and I look forward to the success of this series here in Virginia.”

Virginia’s secretary of commerce and trade Todd Haymore added, “We are pleased to host the production of Homeland, and enthusiastic about what a show of this size will contribute to our local economies. The Commonwealth’s film production industry is a fast growing sector of the new Virginia economy, with a total economic impact of almost $616 million, in addition to supporting nearly 4,000 full-time jobs and providing more than $24 million in state and local taxes in 2015. I am confident Homeland will contribute millions more to our Virginia businesses, big and small, and provide good-paying jobs to our industry workers.”

“A television series is a gift that keeps on giving for the production industry in the Commonwealth,” noted Virginia’s film office director Andy Edmunds. “A series of Homeland’s caliber and popularity gives twice — both during production and then for years after, in the form of film tourism. Having Homeland call the Commonwealth home is another big win for Virginia.”
