Linn Sitler, commissioner of the Memphis Film and Television Commission, told Memphis City Council members Tuesday that Kevin Kane, president of the Memphis Convention and Visitors Bureau, paid the rent on the show’s soundstage here for one month to allow producers to pitch the show to the other networks.
CMT already paid for scripts and outlines for season two of the show, Sitler said. So, they are “ready to go” for a second season. She said she has her “fingers crossed” for the meetings with the other networks, though she said “it may be a long shot.”
About $9 million is already set aside in the state budget for season two and season three of “Sun Records.” However, if the show is not renewed, that money all goes back to Nashville in a pot set aside for other film and television projects across the state.
“We do have other projects, one of them is rather big” Sitler said, without divulging details. “If it happens, we’ll jump to take advantage of that (state) money.”
