L.A. shoots rise 46% for the week

NBC reality show, ABC's 'Criminal Minds' pace TV production

Hollywood’s offlot production bounced back from a quiet holiday week, gaining 46% to 558 permitted days last week.

Overall TV activity gained 83 days to 293 and was up slightly from the same week last year, thanks mostly to reality TV with network series still on hiatus. Permitting agency FilmL.A. reported Tuesday that the most active small-screen production was for an untitled NBC reality show with 21 days and ABC’s “Criminal Minds” with 16 days.

Other TV shows shooting locally included “The Voice,” “Basketball Wives” and “NCIS: Los Angeles.”

Feature films totaled a fairly robust 155 days, led by Mexican indie “Man of Stone.” with 15 days, followed by Terrence Malick’s “Knight of Cups” with 13 days and indie thriller “The Hive,” starring Halle Berry, with 10 days.

“Man of Stone,” which centers on a stuntman who comes to Los Angeles, shot in downtown, Century City, Hollywood and the Dorris Place Elementary School off Riverside Drive. Other features shooting locally included “Jesus in Cowboy Boots,” “Lucky Stiff” and “The Canyons.”

Commercial shooting was moderate with 117 days with a Macy’s spot the most active with 14 days.
