Quantico Qualified for Post-Production Tax Credit in New York
The crime drama television show Quantico follows a new FBI recruit who is accused of coordinating a terrorist attack. The series has enjoyed two successful seasons and was renewed for a third. The show’s lead actress, Priyanka Chopra, won the 2016 People’s Choice Awards for Favorite Actress in a new TV Series. Although the first season was not filmed in New York, the project still qualified for New York’s post-production tax credit. New York has a vibrant visual effects and post production industry and New York allocated $25 million of credits to encourage companies to use it. Quantico’s first season benefited from this program and KPM was able to assist by performing the agreed-upon procedures.
New York is unique in providing a post-production tax credit program. It offers a great opportunity for shows, like Quantico, to benefit from the New York film tax credit program without having to film in New York. KPM can assist any company with their New York production or post-production credit.
