Gov. Cooper talks NC film and Georgia


It was lights, camera, action for Gov. Roy Cooper Thursday.

He will not be featured on an upcoming TV show, but Cooper was in Hampstead to tour the set of the TNT show Good Behavior.

Cooper said seeing the cast and crew hard at work put into perspective how great North Carolina’s film industry is.

He added that North Carolinians should not have to travel to places like Georgia to get jobs in film.

He touched briefly on the film grant passed in the new state budget

That recurring grant allocates over $30 million per year to the film industry.
