I was doing something else when suddenly I realize they are talking about the film industry growth in Detroit and Michigan.
Summary - tax incentives have taken film making from 3 movies a few years ago to 50 this year. Transformers 3? is that right? is getting ready to be shot. Said Detroit areas have subbed in for Paris, Prague and other locations. A interviewee was saying how people were moving back home from Hollywood and LA and another interviewee was saying Detroit is in a resurgence.

I also noticed that when watching Detroit 1-8-7 (which I thought was really good) it has a "made in Detroit" statement. I think the pilot was actually shot in Louisiana (which also seems to have a booming film industry, major rival) but there were some complaints (I'm sure not mine but like mine cuz I was going to boycott the show if they didn't film in Detroit) and so they moved filming location.
