‘Gossip Girl’ gets a break

WBTV granted tax rebate for Paris shoot

Warner Bros. Television has pulled down a French tax rebate for international shoots to film two segs of “Gossip Girl” in Paris this summer.

Episodes will be directed by longtime “Gossip Girl” helmer Mark Piznarski. John Bernard’s Peninsula Film, which handles most big U.S. shoots in France, will be line producer.

Gaul’s rebate is broadly in line with U.K. and German tax relief for international films, allowing a 20% tax rebate on most of a foreign shoot’s expenditure in France. Rebates are capped at E4 million ($5.8 million) per production.

“Girl” shows that the rebate can be tapped for whole seasons or just a clutch of episodes, which make it convenient for overseas TV productions in France, said Patrick Lamassoure at promo org Film France.

Other summer shoots that received confirmation of aid from France’s CNC film board are helmer Lone Scherfig’s “One Day,” starring Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess, and Jeremy Leven’s “Girl on a Bicycle.”
