TV Shows Filming In Chicago Have Made The City $1.3 Billion

Chicago has slowly become a second Hollywood and despite the occasional traffic caused by film crews, it’s a good thing for the economy.

The Mayor’s office report that since TV shows started filming in the city, we’ve generated more than 1.3 billion dollars since 2011.

Currently we’ve got 8 full-time shows and two part-time shows filming here.
