Five productions — ranging from digital series to a documentary to a music video — have been approved for state incentives.
The Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) board approved the incentives during its March meeting. The projects are expected to result in a combined $4.2 million economic impact in Utah and up to 250 jobs.
The largest incentive, in the form of a tax credit of up to $516,281, was approved for Monument PTT LLC for the first two seasons of a documentary TV series titled “Painting the Town,” featuring renown puzzle artist and Utah resident Eric Dowdle. The company is expecting to spend $2 million in Utah, including during principal photography scheduled for March 6-Nov. 11. Steve Olpin is the director. Producers are Miaken Christensen and Richard Patch.
