Offlot prod’n slowed by TV hiatus

Shooting down 72 days from same period last year

Hollywood’s offlot production remained on the moderate side last week with network TV shooting still largely on seasonal hiatus.

TV shooting totaled 298 days, down 72 days from the same week in 2011. “Jimmy Kimmel Live” was the most active TV shoot with 28 days, according to figures released Tuesday by the FilmL.A. permitting agency, followed by 21 days for the reality show “Made.”

Other shows shooting include “Flipped OUt 6,” “Dexter” and “The Office.”

John Sayles’ 18th pic, “Go for Sisters,” was the most active feature shoot with a dozen days for the second week in a row, followed by 11 days for “Jobs,” the Steve Jobs biopic starring Ashton Kutcher. The latter has shot at Loyola Marymount University, numerous San Fernando Valley locations and in Altadena.

Commercial spots surged, with a “Wingspan Ignited” shoot logging the most days with 21.

The report comes with legislation due to be voted on in committees next week to extend California’s three-year-old production incentive program. FilmL.A. execs have urged the state to support the progam amid extensive competition for productions from other states and countries, which have been effective in luring away features and TV dramas.

Separately, Warner Bros. revealed Tuesday that it spent $4.1 billion in 2010 — $1.6 billion for products and $2.5 billion in wages in 2010 — in Los Angeles County as part of a report that may be used to help persaude legislators to support production incentives. The figure was $3.93 billion in 2006 and the $3.16 billion in 1999.
