HBO-Max comedy The Flight Attendant relocating production to California
HBO's The Flight Attendant (pictured) will relocate from New York and TBS sitcom Chad will move production from British Colombia in receipt of the relocating TV series tax credit allocation.
Since the programme began 23 relocating TV projects have move production to California. Seven of these have been from New York, and five from British Colombia, Canada. The newly relocating series are expected to generate USD58.9 million in qualified spending employing 442 crew and spending 117 days filming in California.
“It takes significant effort for an established TV series to pack up and relocate production, so our success with such projects says a lot about the industry’s preference for working here in the Golden State.”
“In total, the 23 relocating TV series in our tax credit program account for more than 7,500 cast and crew jobs, $852 million in qualified spending, and $1.2 billion in direct overall production spending across California,” said California Film Commission Executive Director Colleen Bell. “It takes significant effort for an established TV series to pack up and relocate production, so our success with such projects says a lot about the industry’s preference for working here in the Golden State.”
28 TV series are currently in various states of production in California including HBO’s Westworld, In Treatment, Perry Mason and Euphoria, Twentieth Century Fox’s American Crime Story and American Horror Story, This is Us and Snowfall and Disney's ABC Cable Group’s Good Trouble.
Relocating TV series enjoy a 25% non-transferable tax credit for their first series filmed in California. After the first series, the tax credit is reduced to 20%. Projects receiving the 20% credit can receive an additional 5% uplift on music, visual effects or out-of-zone filming.
