HBO’s “Ballers” is leaving Miami and going to Cali to film. Why? To scoop those juicy tax credits!

Via Deadline:

With the move, the series created by Stephen Levinson and executive produced by Mark Wahlberg, Peter Berg and Rob Weiss is now set to receive $8.3 million from the latest round of California’s TV tax incentive program.

After incentives dried up in Florida and with Ballers having been renewed this summer, making the next 10 episodes in Cali is estimated to result in the employment of 135 cast members plus 209 base crew and 5,700 extras. To further stroke the bottom line, the commission says that could generate up to $33.5 million in paychecks to below-the-line workers and hiring in-state vendors.

I’m not mad at them one bit!
