Productions Filmed In Westchester Score Emmy Nominations

theamericanAug. 4, 2017 - Westchester County Executive Robert P. Astorino congratulates the nine TV shows that were shot in Westchester County on their Emmy nominations. The TV shows combined, scored 17 nominations across various categories.

“From ‘The Americans’ and ‘Mr. Robot,’ to ‘Orange Is The New Black,’ Westchester County proves to be a great location for any genre,” said Astorino. “Congratulations to all of the nominees and good luck.”

The county provides many benefits to productions, including a close proximity to New York City and easy access by air, car, rail or bus; and a deep talent pool of location scouts, crew, and post- production facilities.

Westchester’s film activity is growing, too. According to a recent economic impact survey conducted by the Westchester County Tourism & Film office, the film and TV industry added more than $30 million to the Westchester County economy in 2016—a 67% increase since 2014.
