Emmy-nomninated television programming made in the Los Angeles area will be recognized by the Los Angeles City Council Tuesday.
City Councilman Mitch O’Farrell, who represents a large part of Hollywood, will present representatives of 12 series, made-for-television movies and talk shows with handmade city certificates. Patricia Richardson, SAG-AFTRA Los Angeles local president, will also take part in the ceremony.
The recognition is part of the city’s Made in Hollywood Honors, an effort to raise awareness of the productions filmed or taped in Hollywood and California.
The shows being recognized are:
— “The Good Place,” Outstanding Comedy Series (NBC);

— “This is Us,” Outstanding Drama Series (NBC);
— “Sharp Objects,” Outstanding Limited Series (HBO);

The Made in Hollywood Honors were established in 2011 and are sponsored by O’Farrell, 1600 VINE, SAG-AFTRA, the California Film Commission, Film L.A., Teamsters Local 399, the Film Musicians Secondary Markets Fund and the Producers Guild of America.
