The film and television incentive creates and supports thousands of jobs throughout the state – from the sales representative at a lighting rental company, to the forklift operator at the local lumberyard, to the costumer on the film set. From 2006 to 2015, over 15,500 new jobs were created with an average salary of over $67,000. 70% of those jobs went to Massachusetts residents.

For example, Hulu’s series Castle Rock employed over 1,000 Massachusetts residents, Patriot’s Day employed over 750, and I Feel Pretty over 700.
