Two more television series have relocated to California to take advantage of the state’s film and TV tax credit program, it was announced Monday.
The two shows relocating are NBC’s “Good Girls,” which is moving from Atlanta, and “You,” a Lifetime show relocating from New York City, according to the California Film Commission. Both shows plan to film their second seasons in California, and bring to 15 the total number of shows that have relocated to the state for the tax credit program since it was expanded in 2015, the commission reported.
The commission announced the relocations as the California Film and Television Tax Credit Program 2.0 begins its fourth year. Gov. Jerry Brown last week signed a bill that will extend the program another five years beyond its expiration in 2020.
In 2014, Brown signed a bill which expanded the tax credit program from $100 million to $330 million annually and extended it five years until 2020.
“Year four of California’s expanded tax credit program is off to a great start with a pair of relocating TV series and last week’s passage of legislation to extend the program for another five years,” Film Commission Executive Director Amy Lemisch said. “We’re bringing long-term, high-quality jobs in-state as we reaffirm our commitment to fighting runaway production.”
