Third quarter on-location production in Greater Los Angeles rose 3.8%, thanks to a 54.5% jump in scripted TV production, according to the FilmL.A. permitting agency.
The third quarter set a new Shoot Day record of 4,308 days of TV production in Los Angeles despite a 20% decline in reality TV. That was offset by TV drama production rising 24%, sitcom production soaring 168%, web-based TV gaining 25.6% and pilot production rising 31.6%.
The gains also showed the impact of the California Film and Television tax credit — which has been more than tripled to $330 million annually. Incentive-qualified projects accounted for 247 days in TV drama, 64 days in sitcoms and 42 days for TV pilots.
The incentive-qualified projects included the drama series “Westworld,” “Code Black,” “American Horror Story: Hotel,” “Secrets and Lies” and “Wicked City.” “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” was the only sitcom on the list, while pilots included “Paradise Pictures,” “Animal Kingdom” and “Snowfall.”

We don’t know about you guys, and this is no slight on Lady Gaga, but it seems as if nearly the entire ad campaign for “American Horror Story: Hotel” has been built around her. Let’s hope she can deliver as… Continue Reading →

Lady Gaga jetted out of Los Angeles on Monday evening, but she's not the type to wear sweatpants to the airport. The singer emerged from a car at Lax rocking full-on glamour in a full-length lace dress and sunglasses.

Days after wrapping Season 2 of The Strain with one of the FX drama’s most unexpected deaths, showrunner Carlton Cuse and exec producer Chuck Hogan (who cowrote the horror novel source material with Guillermo del Toro) answered burning questions about Nora’s fate, Eph’s reaction, Eldritch Palmer’s (possible?) change of heart and more.

After Gwyneth Paltrow attended the premiere of Scream Queens to support her boyfriend, creator Brad Falchuk, in September, she was noticeably absent on the red carpet for his latest project, American Horror Story: Hotel, over the weekend. But Brad, who created the series with Ryan Murphy, still had Gwyneth on his mind. When asked about his girlfriend of over a year by Us Weekly, he shared, "Great! Great! Thank you," and added, "I think she just supports everything I do, thankfully." The pair have kept their relationship relatively private since they started dating last Summer, but they did share their first social media snap just weeks ago! »

With Jessica Lange gone, the showrunner seems to have taken a shine to his new leading lady and wants her to return, even though FX has not officially announced a sixth season of the horror anthology series. As it is the cable network's highest-rated series though, it's a given at this point.

The second Lady Gaga entered the room for our E! News interview on the set of American Horror Story: Hotel, it was clear something was…off. Dressed down in jean cutoffs and an Elvis Presley T-shirt, she looked confident but relaxed, blissful but tired after a long day on set, and missing something notable: Her entourage. Accompanied only by her manager, she shook the hand of our entire crew, looked us all in the eye with a genuine smile, and sat down to talk without so much as giving a second thought to the lighting, the angle or the line of questioning. Then the realization hit. This wasn't Lady Gaga, the untouchable music icon and one of the best-selling musicians of all time. This was »

There are plenty of frightened faces but not a single scare in “Ghost Theater,” another dud from horror-meister Hideo Nakata (“The Ring,” “Dark Water”), whose helming and production standards have sunk to the level of any hack director in Nipponese TV. Revolving around a theater troupe haunted by an evil mannequin that saps them of their life force, the film could be renamed “Doll About Eve” with its creaky and vacuous tale of rivalrous actresses. The film’s complete lack of mystery, tension and gore becomes an unwitting metaphor for J-horror, a doddering genre that’s desperate for fresh blood. The pic has been sold to Singapore, Malaysia and Brunei, where its tameness will suit the region’s censorship laws on horror; elsewhere, poor word of mouth will go viral.
“Ghost Theater” is billed as a remake of Nakata’s 1996 horror-thriller, “Don’t Look Up” (already remade in Hollywood by »

Angela Bassett is gearing up for battle in “Tom Clancy‘s Rainbow Six Siege.” The actress is no stranger to playing a badass on screen. She portrayed Secret Service director Lynn Jacobs in 2013’s “Olympus Has Fallen” and CIA director Hayden Chase in the ABC series “Alias.” So, stepping into the role of Six, deputy director of the international Rainbow Six counter-terrorism unit, was a natural transition. “I think I have a little bit of experience with that … being the boss,” Bassett told TheWrap in a wide-ranging interview about the new video game, her role in FX’s “American Horror Story: Hotel” and. »

Because Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk are as interested in subtlety as Mad Men was interested in fire-breathing dragons, the premiere of the new installment of American Horror Story, aptly titled Hotel, builds to a rather crucial use of The Eagles' "Hotel California." See, I don't know if you've heard this, but at the Hotel California, you can check out any time you like, but you can never leave. The same appears to be true of the Hotel Cortez, the art deco-festooned downtown Los Angeles lodgings at the center of American Horror Story: Hotel, which debuts with

From playing a ghastly burn victim to a mute butler with a penchant for dolls to an enormous — cough — con artist, Denis O’Hare has appeared in a number of guises since the first season of American Horror Story. For the upcoming fifth season, O'Hare returns as a cross-dressing employee at the Hotel Cortez’s bar named Liz Taylor. "I have an amazing costumer, Lou Eyrich, and she puts me in amazing clothes," O’Hare told Vulture at Saturday’s American Horror Story: Hotel red-carpet premiere. "We are honoring Liz Taylor so I’m wearing some stuff from Butterfield 8. I’m wearing some Cleopatra stuff. I’m wearing some stuff from the '70s and the '80s. I wear turbans. I don’t think I’m a convincing, woman but I’m a convincing character. Who I am is of a piece."Aside from a fabulous costume designer, »

While Jessica Lange may not be checking into American Horror Story: Hotel this season, there is one new charming traveler who'll be there for an extended stay: the Addiction Demon — or, simply, that thing with the drill-bit dildo. "It’s kind of what you would think it would be," Max Greenfield told Vulture at Saturday’s American Horror Story: Hotel red-carpet premiere. "I would say if it were a drill bit, it would be a big one, and it would fit in a large toolbox as opposed to one of those little, you know, drill-bit cases. And it’s very aggressive."Playing a Hollywood junkie named Gabriel, Greenfield has a scene with the demon and Ahs veteran Sarah Paulson that Ryan Murphy has described as "the most disturbing scene" in the history of the show. (Which has already been pretty disturbing!) "There was a moment of pause, and then I was like, »

Saturday night marked the premiere of American Horror Story: Hotel in La, during which Ryan Murphy revealed a new addition to the show. Before screening the first episode, Ryan introduced the entire cast including Seth Gabel, whom he explained will be playing notorious serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer! If you're not familiar, Dahmer was known as the Milwaukee Cannibal, and he was responsible for the murders of 17 boys and men. His crimes often included rape, dismemberment, and, if you hadn't guessed, consumption. Murphy didn't give additional details about Gabel's role on the show, but we have a feeling he'll be joining in on the two-part Halloween episode alongside fellow serial killer Aileen Wuornos. "The biggest serial killers of all time all come to the hotel. Gacey. Aileen," Murphy said. "It's the biggest serial killers of all time in a room." Get ready for what's sounding like American Horror Story's most harrowing season yet. »

Now this is one hot couple! Lady Gaga hit the red carpet with her equally attractive fiance Taylor Kinney for the premiere of "American Horror Story: Hotel" in Los Angeles, California on Saturday. The pop star looked picture-perfect wearing a one-shoulder red Brandon Maxwell dress with matching red pumps. Gaga finished her look with Old Hollywood curls, smokey eyes and a bold lip. Kinney didn't disappoint either in his three piece black suit. The "Poker Face" singer wasn't the only stunner of the night -- "Ahs" regular Sarah Paulson sparkled on the red carpet in her navy blue sequined Monique Lhuillier midi dress. The blonde beauty wore her chin-length tresses back in tousled waves while she finished her look with a black clutch and black pumps. Matt Bomer also made a stylish appearance, wearing a classic navy suit and burgundy button down, while Kathy Bates kept her red carpet look simple in head-to-toe black. »
