AWARDS SEASON BRINGS OVER FIVE DOZEN NOMINATIONS FOR “MADE IN NY” TELEVISION AND FILM

December 14, 2015 - Last week, a total of 31 "Made in NY" television series/specials and films were honored with 67 nominations for five of the industry's most prestigious awards, including the Writers Guild of America, NAACP Image Awards, Producers Guild of America, Screen Actors Guild, and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association' Golden Globes. A full list of nominees is below.

"Congratulations to this year's 'Made in NY' nominees for their outstanding contributions to television and film," said Mayor's Office of Media and Entertainment Acting Commissioner Luis Castro. "It has been a record-breaking year for production in New York City. We salute the talented writers, producers, actors and crew, all of whom work hard at their craft to create such vibrant and original stories. New York City is proud to be your artistic home. We will be cheering you on."

A recently released study by the Boston Consulting Group found that New York City's filmed entertainment industry now contributes $8.7 billion to the local economy, an increase of more than 1.5 billion, or 21 percent, since 2011. This increase is fueled by the growth of television. Today, TV productions are not only more numerous, but they are produced year-round. This combination has enabled a critical shift toward dependable year-round employment in the industry.

According to the Mayor's Office of Media and Entertainment (MOME), the 2014-2015 season saw an increase in the number of episodic series filmed in New York City grow from 29 series in the 2013-2014 season to a record 46 series in the 2014-2015 season, the largest increase of series produced in New York City from one season to another in city history. The recent growth in TV production in New York City is driven by the proliferation of networks, including digital and cable, commissioning scripted content. In 2004, three networks broadcast scripted shows shot in New York City while ten years later, 19 networks had commissioned dozens of original series. Of the "Made in NY" episodic television series, 17 were nominated for a total of 42 awards.

"Made in NY" is a "mark of distinction" for productions where at least 75% of the television series or film was produced in New York City.
