Among the latest TV shows to set up production in California under the state’s recently expanded Film and Television Tax Credit Program are the Selena Gomez Netflix series “13 Reasons Why” and the TNT project “Animal Kingdom,” Variety reports.
The story quotes California Film Commission Executive Director Amy Lemisch saying: “The expanded tax credit program is working exactly as intended. It’s making California more competitive for high-impact TV projects that provide long-term jobs for cast and crew members, while boosting spending at support vendors and service providers.”
Variety notes: “The program also will allow for the relocation of ABC summer sudser ‘Mistresses’ back from Vancouver, something of interest as star Alyssa Milano left the series after season two, when plans were announced to move the production north.”
Among the other productions that have reportedly been approved under the program are the MTV sitcom “Little Darlings” and the Syfy movie “Sharknado 4,” along with potential upcoming seasons of CW’s “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” CBS’s “Code Black” and Fox’s “Rosewood,” if those series are renewed.
