Stamford, Connecticut: Fast-growing TV production mecca

Dylan Stableford

"We have a real cluster and it's growing."

-- Kevin Segalla, chief executive of the Connecticut Film Center, on the influx of television productions that have moved to Stamford, Conn., in recent years. NBC Sports will move from New York to Stamford, a state official said late last week, joining the "Maury" show, "Jerry Springer Show," "Steve Wilkos Show," NBC Universal-owned Versus and the WWE headquarters. The state has been trying to lure film and television productions to Stamford, 35 miles north of New York City, with tax breaks. "This is a real city," Segalla added. "There's diversity here."
