PROVIDENCE – The R.I. Film & Television Office announced Tuesday that the new ABC series “Body of Proof” will be filmed entirely in Rhode Island, a decision applauded by state officials because of the jobs and revenue they say it will bring.

“We are extremely proud to announce this great news,” Steven Feinberg, director of the film and TV office, said in a statement. “More jobs will be immediately available to our local crew and talent pool. The production will quickly feed new money into our state’s small businesses and help pump up Rhode Island’s economy.”

Pre-production will begin immediately in Warwick, and ABC Studios will begin filming episodes throughout Rhode Island in July, Feinberg said. The pilot for the show, previously titled “Body of Evidence,” was filmed in Rhode Island earlier this year.

“Body of Proof” is scheduled to air on ABC on Friday nights starting this fall. It will tell the story of a “brilliant and tenacious” female medical examiner whose interest in solving crimes puts her at odds with her colleagues and the police, according to ABC. Dana Delany and Jeri Ryan are the co-stars.

State officials, particularly Feinberg, have been working behind the scenes for several months to get “Body of Proof” filmed in Rhode Island, so today’s news marks a victory for them.

In a news release, House Speaker Gordon D. Fox noted that the budget passed last week by the General Assembly would maintain the state’s 25 percent tax credit for film and TV productions made in Rhode Island. Gov. Donald L. Carcieri had proposed scrapping the credit.

“The continuation of the television and film tax incentive program created by the General Assembly played a major role in securing this television series for our state,” Fox said.

Having “Body of Proof” filmed in Rhode Island “can help Rhode Island workers through jobs and internships in the film industry, use of Rhode Island vendors and the promotion of our state through greater exposure of its many magnificent locations,” Senate President M. Teresa Paiva Weed said.

Subdomains + New Jeri Project + Twitter + Gallery Downtime

The subdomains issue has been solved, and everything appears to be working again normally. Please let me know if you still have problems so I can look into them!

I have updated the Filmography page: https://www.jeri-ryan.net/jeri/filmography/

I’ll be upgading the gallery software later today; this one is be a big upgrade and there’s a slight possibility that something goes wrong because of all the behind-the-scenes changes so I’ll be putting the gallery in Maintenance Mode when I start until I’m sure all went well. I’ll open it again as soon as possible.

Looks like Jeri is now on Twitter: http://twitter.com/JeriLRyan I’m not 100% sure it’s really her but I think so – but if it’s a fake, it’s a very good one!

Jeri will be starring in a movie called Dead Lines, which according to her tweets will be filmed in Montreal. According to to an article it is directed by Louis Bélanger, and will air in 2011 on The Movie Network, Movie Central and Super Écran. Copy of the article below:

“We often emphasize the economic impact our productions have on the Canadian film industry,” added co-founder Stephen Greenberg. “More importantly our movies are seen around the world allowing us to showcase the talented creative production team that exists in Quebec.”

MONTREAL: Principal photography has begun on Incendo’s second film of 2010, Dead Lines, which will be directed by Louis Bélanger.

Dead Lines stars Jeri Ryan (Shark, Boston Public, The O.C.). The film will air in Canada in 2011 on The Movie Network, Movie Central and Super Écran. Josée Mauffette, Jean Bureau and Serge Denis will produce the film for Incendo. Executive producers are Stephen Greenberg and Jean Bureau.

Bélanger, one of Quebec’s most renowned directors and screenwriters, was named best director at the 1999 Jutra Awards for his film Post Mortem and his film Gaz Bar Blues won the 2003 Grand Jury Prize at the Montreal World Film Festival.

“Quebec filmmakers are highly skilled and talented and bring a tremendous amount of originality to our productions,” said Jean Bureau, Incendo co-founder. “Each individual brings their own personal touch to the Incendo thriller brand. Most of them had the opportunity to have worked in both television and film which makes their versatility a huge asset to the success of our movies.”
