As Productions Restart, California Tax Credits Lure 
HBO's 'In Treatment,' TBS' 'Miracle Workers'
Film and TV shoots have been slow to resume in the Los Angeles area, according to the Los Angeles Times. But California's recently relaunched tax incentive program continues to lure productions from other states even amid the COVID-19 pandemic. 

HBO's planned reboot of its critically acclaimed drama "In Treatment" and TBS' comedy "Miracle Workers" are moving to California to take advantage of the film and television tax credit program, the California Film Commission said Monday. The shows will each receive about $5 million in tax credits for their first seasons filming in the Golden State, representing 25% of their qualified production spending. Click here to read more.
