Homeland Series News Pic!

The North Carolina-filmed series "Homeland" walked away with a total of six awards following the conclusion of the 64th annual Primetime Emmy Awards at the in Los Angeles on Sunday September 23, 2012. The series, which was nominated for a total of nine honors, won the evening's top honor by taking home the Outstanding Drama Series. In his acceptance speech, Executive Producer Alex Gansa recognized the Charlotte crew for its work on the series. Claire Danes and Damian Lewis were both named Outstanding Leads in a Drama Series and the writing team won Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series for the show's pilot episode. Earlier, on Sepember 15, the series picked up Emmys for Casting and Single Camera Editing at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards. The casting honor was a special highlight for the state as long time North Carolina crew members Craig and Lisa Mae Fincannon are part of the show's casting team.

Filming for the first season, including the show's pilot, is estimated to have resulted in a direct in-state spend in excess of $42 million while providing more than 4,200 job opportunities, including 150 well-paying crew positions for the state's highly-skilled film professionals. The show was heavily courted by the state through the North Carolina Film Office and ultimately chose to shoot in North Carolina as a result of the state's well-trained crew base, the ability to double for Washington, D.C. and its surrounding suburbs, and the state's tax incentive for filming.
