The Utah Film Commission recently confirmed that Disney’s High School Musical series will film in the state.

The Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) approved a state incentive to attract the ten-episode series, for delivery to Disney’s new streaming service.

Filming on the rebooted show will begin early next year in Salt Lake City and is estimated to generate around $14m in production spend.

The series will be told in documentary style as it follows a group of students as they stage a performance of High School Musical.

Virginia Pearce, director of the Utah Film Commission, said: “Visitors still make special trips to Utah to see where High School Musical was filmed and we’re incredibly proud of its resonating impact with generations of young people. We’re thrilled to introduce a fresh take on this classic story and continue to support Disney’s production here in Utah.”

Disney has filmed more than 4 projects in Utah - known as the Beehive state - over the past 20 years, leading to an estimated total spend of around $175m and the creation of more than 3,500 jobs.
