Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear signed a bill this past week that will provide incentives to bring film production to the state. House Bill 340 aims to make Kentucky more competitive in the film industry, namely by increasing tax credits for productions based in the state. First Lady Jane Beshear says that Kentucky can be an ideal place to film, noting the varied landscape and qualified labor available, which helped for Kentucky-made films like “Seabiscuit.” “These incentives will help create a heightened interest for both local and outside filmmakers to seek out Kentucky as a premier filming destination,” adds Mrs. Beshear. It remains undetermined if quality fried chicken will be added to the incentives.
