TV drama Revolution leaves North Carolina for Texas filming locations
Drama series Revolution will be leaving Wilmington, North Carolina, to film on location in Texas for its second season. The show portrays humanity's struggles in a dystopian future where the world's electrical power has been lost.
The move away from North Carolina seems to be motivated mainly by a need for different filming locations as the show's characters travel across the country.
"They had always made allusions to Texas in the show and I was thinking if they go to Texas, that it would be hard to imagine Texas here," Wilmington Councilman Kevin O'Grady told local NBC affiliate WECT: "We don't have that dry, arroyo-type location. So, it's not a complete shock. We have lots of film work and other shows here now and there will be more coming."
Texas offers a Moving Image Industry Incentive Programme. Productions could be eligible for up to 17.5% of their Texas expenditure or up to 29.25% of wages paid to Texas residents. There are also sales tax exemptions available.
