Tax Incentive Means Filming Boom for NYC

With "The Sopranos" season premiere last night viewers finally got a chance to see the end product of months of work filmed on location, and at SilverCup Studios in Long Island City.

New York City is experiencing a film and television production boom. Much of the work has been spurred by a 15 percent tax incentive put into place a little overa year ago, to keep film producers from shooting out of state, in Canada, or in other cheaper places. Crain's New York business reporter Miriam Souccar joins WNYC's Amy Eddings to discuss the incentive and the health of the New York film industry.
