DETROIT (AP) - The Michigan Film Office says the pilot for a TV adaptation of the movie "12 Monkeys" is being shot in the Detroit area and has been approved for a film incentive from the state.

The pilot for a Syfy Television Network series was approved for an incentive of $1.5 million on $5.3 million of projected in-state expenditures. It focuses on a time traveler from the post-apocalyptic future who appears in present day to find and destroy the source of a deadly plague that eventually will decimate the human race.
