Show business is booming business in Connecticut, as another television series moves its production operations to the state.
NBC UNIVERSAL DOMESTIC TV DISTRIBUTION announced it renewed the syndicated version of DEAL OR NO DEAL for a second season which is sold in more than 85% of the US for next fall.
To keep costs down, ENDEMOL USA and production partner NBC UNIVERSAL DOMESTIC TV DISTRIBUTION will begin shooting the new season of DEAL OR NO DEAL this summer at the SONALYSTS STUDIOS in Waterford.
Host HOWIE MANDEL will also make the move to Connecticut from CULVER STUDIOS in Culver City.
NBCU previously announced three other of its shows, MAURY, JERRY SPRINGER and STEVE WILKOS will be moving production to Stamford, Connecticut from New York and Chicago respectively.
Connecticut offers a 30% production tax credit established in 2006 by the state's General Assembly.
