District 1 Commissioner Barbara Jordan has stated in a news release earlier this year that she has her eye on film and television production. "District 1 holds a lot of promise for television and film production," said Commissioner Jordan. The commissioner recognizes the economic impact the industry of production affords after a recent visit to the Starz network show "Magic City" set. Commissioner Jordan plans to open District 1 up focusing on the economic development that film and television production can bring to the North Miami - Dade area.
