STATEMENT: Mayor Garcetti on Netflix moving production to California

“Los Angeles has more to offer television and film producers than anywhere else in the world: unmatched production resources, diverse landscapes, and hardworking people who are the heart and soul of the entertainment industry. I am firmly committed to protecting and expanding L.A.'s economy and middle class, which is why we are working hand-in-hand with the film industry to cut red tape, coordinate with city departments, and invest in city services that promote entertainment job production. I’m thrilled that a creative force like Netflix is investing in our city — because it means new opportunities for L.A.’s workers, and sends a signal that Hollywood is where the most gifted on-screen and behind-the-scenes talent is planting roots and planning the future.” — Mayor Eric Garcetti
