Ping Pong Summer starring Ocean City, Maryland Coming Soon to Theater

Filmmakers like to shoot in Maryland. They can go from urban settings to horse country, to wine country, to a waterfront town along the Chesapeake Bay – all within an hour or two. That’s what travelers like about the state, too. From Mountain Maryland to the Eastern Shore, you’re always in easy driving distance. See where the stars have been most recently . Better Living Through Chemistry (Annapolis), House of Cards (Harford County), LUV (Baltimore), Ping Pong Summer (Ocean City) and Veep (Howard County) are all Maryland-made productions for 2013 release.
