film industry

Made in Michigan

Last night's premiere of the new ABC drama Detroit 1-8-7 was just the latest sign of the success of the burgeoning film industry in the state of Michigan. Although parts of the pilot episode were filmed in Atlanta, future episodes will be shot entirely on location in the Detroit area. The gritty police drama — which stars Michael Imperioli and James McDaniel — joins the HBO comedy-drama Hung — which although not filmed entirely in the area, is set here — in using the Detroit metropolitan area as a backdrop for interesting storytelling. These two programs join a growing list of films that were shot in Michigan over the last couple of years — several of which have already been released.
