The breakdown in Annapolis over boosting incentives for films and television series shot in Maryland has left the state without enough money to give Netflix's "House of Cards" what it was seeking to produce its next season here, officials acknowledged Tuesday.
The potential pool of cash available for the film industry shrank by $3.5 million in the final minutes of the General Assembly session, leaving lawmakers asking: Is $15 million enough for "House of Cards" to stay?
Yesterday Gov. Martin O'Malley announced that "House of Cards" — a Washington-based TV series starring Kevin Spacey — will be filmed in Baltimore this spring, making it the third political drama to be produced in Maryland in less than a year.
Whether he is handing out hard hits on the football field or delivering one-liners during interviews, Terrell Suggs is used to making plenty of noise at his day job (just ask NFL quarterbacks like Tom Brady). But the outspoken Ravens linebacker, a Pro Bowler in 2010, is quietly making a name for himself in the film industry.
