Stamford is the new 'Hollywood East'
Connecticut's television and film industry is celebrating this evening, after two big boosts that are expected to bring more jobs and productions to the Stamford area.
The latest announcement occurred yesterday when NBC Sports agreed to relocate from New York to Stamford to take advantage of tax breaks. Stamford is also home to the TBS sitcom, "Are We There Yet?" located at the Connecticut Film Center.
