NORTH CHARLESTON (WCSC) - In an effort to bring more jobs and revenue to North Charleston, city leaders are planning a trip to Hollywood. They're going to meet with network television executives and movie producers to pitch their city for future projects.
"North Charleston has a lot to offer," said Amy Heath, Director of Tourism for the City of North Charleston. "We love the film industry and we want [them] to film in the city of North Charleston."
Heath hopes to use their recent role on the new CBS show Reckless to entice more projects into their city limits. Several shots of the Riverfront Park can be spotted in the second episode of the show. And that's not all - CBS made a big investment in North Charleston while filming Reckless. Production took an old manufacturing plant and transformed it into a massive sound stage. The building has 75,000 square feet of sound proof sets, as well as offices the art department used.
"The amount of dollars that are spent in North Charleston - whether its through hotels, shopping, restaurants - the economic impact is huge," said Heath.
