With Hollywood increasingly headed to China, here’s a twist: A Chinese TV series is about to set up shop in the Pacific Northwest. DMG Entertainment, the company that partnered with Marvel on Iron Man 3 in China, will team with Washington FilmWorks to develop, produce and shoot a Chinese-language TV drama in Seattle. The series is eyeing an early 2014 production start. It’s untitled for the moment, but will follow the lives and loves of a group of Chinese nationals as they deal with modern American life. China’s leading broadcaster CCTV will air the show. DMG chief Dan Mintz noted that “The Seattle area boasts a highly diverse cultural make-up and that includes a lot of Chinese and Asian communities, which makes it a perfect place to set the show.” Washington governor Jay Inslee added, “China represents a major trading partner for a wide range of Washington State industries; the agreements signed today with Chinese film and technology companies, like DMG, will be the foundation of our shared economic success.” Washington FilmWorks is a non-profit that manages the Washington state film incentive programs.
