There was a wonderful, golden nugget of information in the major revelation today that a new Hollywood film studio and talent agency is opening in Pontiac.
Oh, don't get me wrong: The big news, reported in the Free Press and to be announced later tonight by Gov. Jennifer Granholm, is that Motown Motion Picture Studios is opening the $54-million facility in the first place.
And it's great news that the 600,000-square foot company will employ 5,000 people.
But here's the other exciting thing: The new facility, which will be run by Raleigh Studios, will move into the old General Motors Centerpoint truck plant and office complex.
