L.A. prod’n drops due to late pilot season

Features also see slow week

Local weekly offlot production declined 26% last week, mostly due to TV pilot season shooting starting later this year.

Weekly overall production registered one of the lowest levels of 2012 at 513 days, according to figures provided Tuesday by the FilmL.A. permitting agency.

A trio of pilots — “Ray Donovan,” “Chelsea General” and “Entry Level” — have started shooting this week with more expected to start soon. Overall TV shoots slid 68 days to 298 with reality show “Follow Skylerr/Kamikaze Comedy” racking up 55 days last week.

Other shows shot locally include “American Judy,” “The Client List,” “All Things Brody,” “Bounty Wars,” “Melissa & Tye” and “So You Think You Can Dance.”

Feature activity lagged in one of the slowest weeks of this year with “HH Project” booking 10 days. Films being shot include “40s Is the New Dead,” “Coffee Town,” “It’s Not You, It’s Me,” “In a World,” “Supremacy” and “Truck Stop.”
