Timeless Season 2 has been given a helping financial hand, Variety reports:
NBC’s drama “Timeless” is shifting production for its second season from Vancouver to California — the 12th TV series to relocate, 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 barely made it to Season 2, having been cancelled and revived at the 13th hour. The odds are already stacked against a third season renewal, but could continued tax incentives help extend the NBC drama’s run into the 2018-19 season? Stay tuned as we observe the future…
