Under the Dome
North Carolina Film Office has many projects going on all over the state.  Visit Wilmington to see the filming of a 13-episode CBS series "Under the Dome" by Stephen King.  In discussing producing the film in NC, rather than King's home state, Maine, LA Times Michael Verrier said "Aside from the inhospitable winter season, Maine does not provide the kind of competitive film tax credit that is increasingly vital to producing television dramas."   

Visit the NC Film Office to find out about other movies and TV shows filming in North Carolina.  And while you're there, check out the NCBBI Facebook page to see events all over the state.
