NBC said it will film one of its new pilots in New York instead of Toronto as a show of support for a new film-tax credit.

The Big Apple City Council passed the credit Tuesday, which gives TV and movie production companies a 5% tax credit on top of the 10% credit they already get.

The bill covers sets, costumes, locations, equipment, caterers, actors and editors and could save production companies up to $12.5 million.
