Filming in North Carolina

North Carolina's production activity has plumetted after changing its 25% tax credit incentive to a grant programme. The scheme has yet to be extended past 2017, leaving television shows to look elsewhere for stable incentives.

Among the state's recent productions are Masterminds, The Disappointments Room and The Choice.

It is our pleasure to return to North Carolina for our third season of Under the Dome. The film community in the state, and particularly in the greater Wilmington area, is simply outstanding.

Kevin Berg, Executive Vice President of Production for CBS Television Studios
