TV Joins Film In Abandoning California to Chase Corporate Welfare

The Los Angeles Daily News reports on a new study that shows television productions are also fleeing the former-Golden State in favor of what was once (and still is) derisively referred to by leftists as trickle-down economics: 

A study released Tuesday by FilmL.A. shows that yet another sector of production is fleeing the area for other jurisdictions that offer better incentives.

For the first time, Los Angeles' share of television pilots — the sample episodes used to sell a series — fell below the half mark, to 44 percent, during the 2013-14 development cycle.

More alarming, Los Angeles came in second to New York in the subcategory of one-hour drama pilots, with the Big Apple hosting 24 to L.A.'s 19. Dramas spend far more money and hire more workers than any other TV formats, and 91 dramatic pilots were made out-of-state this cycle.

and local pilot production equaled 90 projects out of 203 that were tracked by the survey. 07 seasonal share of 82 percent.
