(Updated) There are serious concerns about the Tennessee Film, Entertainment and Music Commission. A recent document released by the State of Tennessee Comptroller’s office shows serious oversight concerns, according to some lawmakers.

The objectives of the audit were to evaluate the effectiveness of the incentive program and award process.

According to the report, “The audit revealed information suggesting the former  executive director’s husband worked for, or was in appearance, professionally involved with, a law firm involved with at least three film projects that received a  Film  Commission incentive.”

“As of  June 2012, the  Film  Commission reported that  since 2008, it has paid out $9,100,127.64 in incentives to 27 film projects. The Department of Revenue,  as of October 2012, reported 30 production companies have been approved for $9,135,748.88 in incentives.”

In the papers that were released, a number of emails were made public that further demonstrated misappropriation activity. The emails and the documents can be read on (below).
