California set out to curb runaway production in 2015 with a revamped $1.55 billion incentives program. It's been so impactful that the state has not only kept many new productions local, it also has lured back a handful of TV shows from afar. The program is sure to be one hot topic when the state's regional film liaisons gather May 20 at the Film in California Conference. Every 12 months, the state divides its $330 million annual payout, with 40 percent earmarked for TV pilots and series, with an additional 20 percent allocated for relocating shows , with 40 percents going to films.
