L.A. weekly TV production still soft

Pilots starting to pick up

Offlot TV production in Los Angeles has remained soft at the start of the spring quarter, following a 9% decline during the first quarter.

Permitting agency FilmL.A. provided figures Tuesday showing that TV shooting last week fell by 75 permitted days with Shed Media’s reality show “HXL” as the most active production.

Pilot production accounted for 58 days, compared with 55 days in the same frame of 2011, including “Bad Girls,” “The Widow Detective” and “The New Normal.” Other shows shooting locally included “CSI,” “The Client List,” “Germany’s Next Top Model,” “Kendra on Top,” “The Life Guru,” “The Voice” and “Awkward.”

Pilot production spiked during the last two weeks of March with more than two-thirds of first-quarter pilot production.

Feature production jumped 62% to 102 days, still below average. Hydraulx Films’ “Chimera” was the most active with 29 days while other projects shot last week included “Atlas Shrugged Part II,” “Chimera,” “Get a Job,” “Stand Up Guys” and “Super Cyclone.”
