I don't like the sound of this at all.

It just excludes NC-17

Yeah, now.

Someone should check with ABQ and ask them about how much money Breaking Bad brought into their economy (spoiler: it's a lot)

Well supposedly this would only affect NC-17 films. If BB were a theatrical film, it wouldn't be an NC-17. The problem is that the decision whether or not to give the tax breaks has to come before a film's production. Films aren't rated until they're completed for obvious reasons. Sometimes they're not rated until the very last minute.

I would wager good money that if you played Gus Fring's death scene to the MPAA you'd have trouble getting anything less than a hard R from them.

Probably. They do get away with a lot of violence in PG-13s these days though. But that was rather gory. Still, not NC-17 material. Studios tend to avoid that rating like the plague.

How would that even work? The tax credits would need to be applied while filming, but a film isn't rated until close to release, which could be a year or longer after filming is done.
