Are Film and TV Productions Coming Back to Louisiana?
Movie and television production crews are returning to Louisiana, but nearly all of the filming is being done in New Orleans or Baton Rouge.
Shreveport Oscar winner Bill Joyce tells KEEL News state leaders have changed the laws to entice more productions back to Louisiana but he says don't expect it to pick up dramatically because production companies are still uncertain if the laws will continue to offer favorable tax credits. But he says the "tax incentives have gotten so strong again that it makes it quite alluring, but people are a little skittish because we have changed our rules so many times."
