Illinois is generating record breaking film production revenues.  Officials say projected film production revenue last year hit a record high of 630-million-dollars, shattering pre-pandemic levels in 2019 by 70-million-dollars.  Film production revenues are the costs associated with film, television, streaming, and digital media.  Major prime-time programs help generate the record high revenues, including NBC’s “Chicago Fire,” “Chicago Med,” and “Chicago PD.”
