After the Netflix series “House of Cards” had an economic impact of more than $700 million on Maryland while filming its six seasons in the state from 2012 to 2018, there’s hope that a new television show can make its mark in 2020.
Gov. Larry Hogan announced in October that a pilot episode for a potential new Showtime series, “The President is Missing,” starring David Oyelowo, is set to begin filming in Maryland in early 2020. Maryland Film Office director Jack Gerbes is optimistic about its prospective influence on the state’s economy.
