A new "secret" pilot episode of a major upcoming streaming series, produced by Imagine Television Studios and CBS Television Studios, is set to film in Central Virginia this summer.
The series' name, cast or a show description have not been revealed, nor a filming start date or an exact location.
"Due to the confidentiality requested by the client, these are all of the details they wish to publicize at this time," said Marissa Asto, a spokesperson for Virginia Governor Ralph Northam.
The pilot is eligible to receive a Virginia film tax credit and grant, based on the number of Virginia workers hired, Virginia goods and services purchased and Virginia tourism promotions created.

The Virginia Film Office is part of the Virginia Tourism Corporation, the state agency charged with marketing the state of Virginia. In 2018, visitors spent $26 billion, supporting 234,000 jobs and contributing $1.8 billion in state and local taxes.
“We warmly welcome the pilot’s talented cast and crew to our Commonwealth, and the opportunity to play a role in putting new stories on screen,” said Northam. “Virginia has long been a pioneer in the world of technology and innovation and we are now proving ourselves to be in a prime position to lead in the rapidly-expanding film, television and production industry, as well.”
