First Connecticut, Now Pennsylvania?

A while back, I told you that Connecticut was becoming filmmaking's latest hot spot. Now, I'm wondering if Pennsylvania's next. Much to Sienna Miller's likely chagrin, filmmakers and TV producers haven't exactly fled the state ever since her famously nasty comments while filming The Mysteries of Pittsburgh there last year.

Instead, the upcoming Spike TV show "The Kill Point" recently spent more than two months filming in Pittsburgh, and the state legislature is considering implementing tax breaks — like those that have helped push filmmakers to Connecticut — for productions that choose to locate in the state.

But that may not be the only reason producers have The Keystone State on the brain these days. Quite a few current and upcoming TV shows are set throughout the state — even if they're not actively filming there. Consider:

More PA goodies, so

Sheesh. I wonder which underappreciated state will be next?

I'm from Philadelphia and have always felt that this great city of brotherly love was downplayed way too much in the media. I generally blame its equidistant placement between media powerhouses New York and Washington DC. I go to New York often and I live in DC, but no show or movie makes my heart skip a beat like one shot in my hometown. (I'll refrain from reciting the opening lines from the Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme song. You all get the point.)
