Kevin Spacey - Maryland Legislators Vote To Keep House Of Cards Production In The State

Production on the third season of Kevin Spacey's hit political drama House Of Cards is set to resume in Maryland this summer (14) after state legislators agreed to continue granting show bosses tax credits to lower the cost of filming.

Maryland doubled up as Washington, D.C. for much of the series' first two seasons, but show executives halted production earlier this year (14) and began looking into other possible shoot locations as local officials debated whether or not to allow another increase in the budget for film and tax credits, as they have in previous years.

The tax benefits had allowed bosses at House of Cards' California-based production company, Media Rights Capital, to save more than $11 million (£6.9 million) for the first year of filming in 2012, while they are expected to receive up to $15 million (£9.4 million) for season two, which was shot last year (13).

A deal has since been reached and on Friday (25Apr14), Governor Martin O'Malley announced that House of Cards will continue to shoot in Maryland.
