Nevada made big bucks off TV shows and movies
last year.

Lieutenant Governor Brian Krolicki says film production
generated 106 (m) million dollars for the Nevada economy last year,
and he was hopeful it would contribute more in 2007.

Most of that money came from televisions shows. More that 53 (m)
million dollars in T-V production was spent in Nevada.

Feature films were the second-largest generator at 14 (m)
million dollars.

Krolicki, who leads economic development and tourism efforts,
says revenue from production has doubled since 1998 despite
struggles in the American film industry.

55 feature films were shot in the state. That includes "Ocean's
13" starring George Clooney and Brad Pitt and "The Great Buck
Howard" with Tom Hanks.
