The Michigan Film Office says the HBO series "Hung" has been approved for tax incentive worth about $1 million for the show's third season.
The film office said in a release Tuesday that the series was awarded the incentive based on about $2.6 million of projected in-state expenditures. The series is set in suburban Detroit and is partially shot in the area.
Gov. Rick Snyder has proposed setting an annual $25 million cap on the tax credits, which currently are unlimited. The Republican-led Legislature still must approve the GOP governor's plan, but the film office is operating under the $25 million target.
The statement says "Hung" is the third project approved under the new policy and guidelines.
