CHICAGO — The Oakland County Economic Development Corp. will price $28 million of recovery zone facility bonds — most of which will be privately placed — to finance a new film studio in an abandoned General Motors Corp. plant in Pontiac, Mich.

The county’s approval was the last hurdle for the $60 million project. It’s considered a key part of Michigan’s bid to attract film and television production companies, and is expected to bring new jobs and visibility to Pontiac, a cash-strapped city that the state declared to be in a fiscal emergency more than a year ago.
