County officials pump up sites for movie business

Can you imagine: Hollywood on the shores of Lake St. Clair?

Macomb County officials are making a major push to lure film companies here after Michigan's new tax incentives for movie makers has proven highly successful. Some 65 films are in the works that will be shot in the Great Lakes State.

County Commissioner Carey Torrice, a model and actress, is leading the push to put Macomb County on the map in the land of the silver screen. Torrice, who took office just two years ago, believes her connections in the entertainment industry can make Macomb County a destination for production studios.
