2012 was a hot year in Hollywood North. TORONTO’s film and television industry set a record last year, and business looks just as strong for 2013. Twenty-one productions are underway or are about to begin, including 9 domestic and foreign television series, and two pilots.
Karen Thorne-Stone, president and CEO of Ontario Media Development Corporation: “It’s a record. Again. In terms of the entertainment and creative cluster (which takes in publishing and broadcasting), it’s well over $12 billion a year to the provincial economy, and that’s bigger than agriculture.” – Business, Toronto Star, March 2/2013
