NBC’s ‘Timeless’ Relocating Production to California to Receive Tax Credit!
NBC’s drama “Timeless” is shifting production for its second season from Vancouver to California — the 12th TV series to relocate to the West Coast to receive the state’s production tax credit. “Timeless” has been conditionally approved to receive a $9.9 million production tax credit from the state. The California Film Commission announced the move Thursday and said the series would employ approximately 250 cast, 220 crew and 3000 extras and spend nearly $40 million in wages to below-the-line workers and payments to in-state vendors. “Timeless” joins three other TV series (“Lucifer,” “Legion” and “Mistresses”) to relocate from Canada to California under the commission’s Program 2.0. “We’re pleased to welcome ‘Timeless’ to the growing list of TV series that have relocated from other locales, including Canada, Maryland, New York, North Carolina, Louisiana, Florida and Texas,” said California Film Commission Executive Director Amy Lemisch. “Program 2.0 is creating long-term jobs while enabling such projects to take advantage of California’s unmatched production resources.”
This is why we need strong unions and union minded politicians (they appoint most judges), to keep an eye on the behind the scenes shenanigans that go on. And if your in a state that elects judges, you need to elect ones that will stand up for union rights! The states that elect judges are Alabama, Illinois, Louisiana, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, and West Virginia.
