Film Credit expanded for certain relocating TV series


The California Film Commission has announced that the March 7–9, 2022 application period for the California Film & TV Tax Credit Program 3.0 for recurring TV series has been expanded. It now includes relocating TV series that meet the following:

  • With a minimum production budget of $1 million per episode; and
  • That filmed at least 75% of principal photography days in its most recent season outside of California or has filmed all seasons outside of California and for which the taxpayer certifies that the credit is the primary reason for relocating to California.
