Video series on Miami Beach hotel operator gets city funding boost
Written by Miami Today on April 2, 2018
The Fontainebleau Hotel, Ocean Drive and the sands of Miami Beach are to be shown in a pilot series video on a Miami Beach Hotel operator, helped along by a $10,000 city grant to encourage the filming there.
The money comes from a $100,000 film production grant program that the city approved last month, with at least nine additional projects to be chosen for funding this fiscal year.
The series, “Grand Hotel,” is being produced by actress Eva Longoria.
“The film industry has been vital in our city’s evolution from a vibrant tropical metropolis to a world-class destination,” said Mayor Dan Gelber. “I’m excited to collaborate with the talented producers and creative minds behind ‘Grand Hotel’ as they lead in their industry and shine a spotlight on Miami Beach.”
