It might be a bit of an exaggeration, but it is interesting to see how many productions have been filming in Bankstown lately (see the source below).
MCTV talent have been working most recently on the new series of Janet King, but were also featured in Mad Max and the new Peter Brock telemovie.
The truth is, there’s a Film and TV production boom across the whole of Sydney and Bankstown might be getting a little more than their fair share.
