Newark is ready for its close up.
New Jersey's largest city has established an office of film and television. It was set up to help companies with everything from logistics to identifying locations for film shoots.
It will also help film and TV producers apply for state incentive programs
City officials hope to persuade filmmakers to consider shooting in Newark and also obtain any needed goods and services locally.
The office will also offer an educational and internship program for Newark high school students interested in media careers.
