For your info, from INSIDENOVA: Netflix looking for production hub Netflix is looking for a new hub for its growing original programing and several Virginia sites are in the mix, reports Richmond BizSense. Netflix executives sent a letter to Gov. Ralph Northam in April that noted the company is looking for additional filming locations outside of their operations in Los Angeles and New York. “Virginia has the potential to be an attractive location with great creative and technical talent,” the letter noted. Andy Edmunds, director, Virginia Film Office, told Richmond BizSense that his division is familiar with Netflix’s letter to the governor’s office. He would not comment about any specific dealings involving Netflix, but said he recently visited the company’s California headquarters. “(Netflix) currently has 700 productions underway in 100 countries,” Edmunds said. ‘We want this work in Virginia.” (richmondbizsense.com)
