Entertainment Weekly reported that Fox's sci-fi series Fringe will move production from New York to Vancouver, Canada, in the event it is picked up for a second season.

In a statement, Warner Brothers Television told EW that "in this challenging and uncertain economic environment, we have made the very difficult decision to move. ... We did not come to this conclusion easily, but economic and practical imperatives dictated that this decision be made in a timely manner."

It is believed that the decision to relocate is due largely to the lingering possibility that New York state's film/TV production tax incentive program, which just recently ran out of funds, will not be replenished by Gov. David Paterson, the magazine reported.
