Hope Springs, shot in Wanlockhead, airs on BBC1 on Sunday
Film makers have generated nearly £2m for the south west Scotland economy over the past two years.
The figure has been revealed on the eve of this weekend's screening of the first part of Hope Springs - the BBC's new drama series shot in Wanlockhead.
Dumfries and Galloway has become an increasingly popular location for both television and cinema productions.
Film officer Mark Geddes said that had, in turn, generated significant income for the region in the past 24 months.
The first episode of Hope Springs is screened on BBC1 on Sunday night.
It follows the fortunes of four female ex-convicts who find themselves hiding out in a remote Scottish village.

It is the latest of a number of productions to be shot in south west Scotland.
Zombie horror film Outpost was partly filmed near Castle Douglas and there are plans to locate a sequel in the region.
Discussions are also ongoing about a permanent film production base in Dumfries and Galloway.
In addition, two other movie projects - Love is an Urban Myth and A House in Berlin - recently secured economic support to film in the area.
The financial benefits to Dumfries and Galloway come through the location spend when crews are based in the region.
However, there is a further boost in terms of raising the profile of south west Scotland.
The small village of Wanlockhead is the latest site hoping to feel the benefit of its film role.
A party is planned to coincide with the first episode of Hope Springs and residents hope to see visitor numbers increase as a result of the series.
