A huge portion of Fort Monmouth, an Army base located in three Monmouth County towns that was shuttered in 2011, could become the home of a Netflix production facility.

The facility would be located on a 289-acre “mega parcel” made available in July through a process known as the Fort Monmouth Economic Revitalization Authority’s (FMERA) request for offers to purchase.

Netflix, on Tuesday, confirmed that it was submitting a bid for the parcel, which is located in Eatontown and Oceanport at the fort. It’s unclear how many other bids have been received.

“America’s first movie studio was in New Jersey, and today it’s home to many talented people working in entertainment,” a Netflix spokesperson told NJ Advance Media. “Governor (Phil) Murphy and the state’s legislative leaders have created a business environment that’s welcomed film and television production back to the state, and we’re excited to submit our bid to transform Fort Monmouth into a state-of-the-art production facility.”
