More on the Burn Notice perspective
Burn Notice will most likely be picked up for another season. And you know what, while I would hate to see them go, the move from Coconut Grove may be a great thing for them. New scenery and premises may keep the show in the air for years to come. When one door closes, another opens. They may get a second wind and fresh story lines and ideas by making the move to another area of the county.
As for figures, just in a nutshell here are some hard numbers (and independently verified by the Office of Film & Entertainment Incentive folks) from years One through Five. Six is not yet complete:
Number of Florida Workers from 2007 - 2012: 15,017
Number of total Hotel Nights from 2007 - 2012: 13,244
Florida Wages Paid from 2007 - 2012: $62,908,280
Florida Vendors Paid from 2007 - 2012: $46,328563
Incentive Reimbursement Amount: $35,605,599 (expenses that were approved for the incentive and made the cut)
Approved Florida Expenses: $109,236,843 (expenses that may not have qualified for the incentive but still have to be approved by the Film office and FOX)
So we all hope that a final agreement happens and that they stay in Coconut Grove, but if they don't, at least this money will remain in the county, that's if they take up Mayor Gimenez's offer and also if they do receive the go ahead for a seventh and maybe an eighth season.
