The movie business used to be a big deal in the Charlotte area, bringing thousands of jobs and millions of dollars to the area. But the work dried up for a time. Now there’s a push to get that business back.
Episodes of the popular Showtime series Homeland and Cinemax show Banshee were made in the Charlotte area for three years. Douglas Young and his wife both worked on Homeland. Both have lived in the Queen City for decades, but they can’t get work here anymore.
“It’s always great to be able to stay at home. Instead, I’m working in other states and paying taxes there,” Young said.
