Two television series from San Fernando Valley production companies will relocate to Los Angeles after receiving more than $15 million in California tax credits.
“Good Girls” is relocating from Atlanta and “You” is switching locations from New York. These make for a total of 15 television series that have moved to California to take advantage of the state’s Film & TV Tax Credit Program 2.0.
Amy Lemisch, executive director of the California Film Commission, which administers the tax credit program, said that the fourth year of the program is off to a great start with the pair of relocating series.
“We’re bringing long-term, high-quality jobs in-state as we reaffirm our commitment to fighting runaway production,” Lemisch said in a statement.
“Good Girls” is produced by Universal Television, the television production subsidiary of NBCUniversal Television Group, which has West Coast operations in Universal City. The show, set in Michigan, plans 103 shoot days in California for its next season.
“You” is produced by Horizon Scripted Television, a division of the Warner Bros. Television Group, in Burbank. The series plans 80 shoot days in the region.
Together, the two series are on track to employ 420 crew, 429 cast and 7,060 extras.
