Extended deal with equipment provider
Raleigh Studios has extended its exclusive deal with heavy equipment provider 1st Call to its Baton Rouge lot.
1st Call will keep its equipment on the Raleigh lot and will support the entire state of Louisiana and surrounding region.
Raleigh, which in addition to Baton Rouge already has three locations in the Los Angeles area and one in Budapest, plans to add a Detroit facility.
1st Call is unusual for using its equipment rental revenues to fund TV programming development (Daily Variety, March 27, 2009)
