Gov. Pat McCroryRemember after the election I told you about the possibility of Pat McCrory calling a special session for incentives. Well, it looks like it just might happen, HOWEVER, I was told not to get to excited because they will probably bring up everything BUT film. We shall see. It’s shame because we will lose Sleepy Hollow if they order a complete 3rd season. Canada is the latest rumor.

Sleepy Hollow will be wrapping by the end of January.
