If you're a TV show and want to have a real-world impact, just be as good as Breaking Bad is — because a bill introduced after how successful the show became was just signed into law! Yeah bitch!
The Breaking Bad bill will increase subsidies on film and TV productions shot in the state! This means that tax refunds for TV will be increased from 25 percent to 30 percent of a producer’s qualified spend in the state — and movies will receive other incentives like these things, according to the source:
'Feature films will get 30 percent back on resident labor if using a qualified production facility. They will also get 25 percent back on all other expenses. In addition, a roll-over of $10 million in unused credits per fiscal year will be allowed.'
We wouldn't be surprised if Batman moves out of Gotham and heads to patrol Albuquerque! LOLz!!
The change of heart from New Mexico is tied directly to Breaking Bad too, as tourists are all about checking out the locations!!
