The article focuses on the shift of focus among New York actors as they make on-camera work their main focus. It is due to the state and city tax incentives in place for production companies that shoot in New York and mayor and governor support strongly the film and television industry. New York actor Christine Toy Johnson gained the benefits in the shift as she engaged on stage and screen work. Among the series that shoot in New York are "Gossip Girl," "Lipstick Jungle," and "Damages."
