NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A state grant of up to $7.5 million has been approved for the "Nashville" television show on ABC this fall.
The Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development said Wednesday the reimbursement grant will be based on the production's actual qualified expenditures made in the state. The show will film in Nashville.
Qualified expenditures are those incurred in the state for goods or services purchased from a Tennessee vendor or paid to a Tennessee resident in connection with the production.
The department said in a news release that the production is expected to employ more than 350 Tennessee residents in various crew positions in and around Nashville. Principal production work is to begin in mid-July.
The show is about a country music legend and a younger up-and-coming singer.
