LOS ANGELES - City Councilmember Mitch O’Farrell and actor Marg Helgenberger shined the spotlight on 23 Emmy®-nominated television productions during a special event serving to celebrate those who are working to maintain Hollywood’s status as the Entertainment Capitol of the World.
The Made in Hollywood Honors (MIHH) took place at 1600 Vine, on the Heart of Hollywood Terrace. The 5th annual event honored a record-setting 23 Emmy®-nominated productions made in the Los Angeles area. These shows comprise more than half the nominees in the nine designated nomination categories.
“We are seeing a 27 percent increase over last year of Emmy®--nominated shows made in Hollywood and the state of California,” said Councilmember O’Farrell. “The incentives that went into effect in 2015 are stimulating the local economy, helping families stay together, supporting local businesses, and increasing our tax base which helps to fund basic city services. State bill AB1839 is also helping us reclaim our signature industry. Television production in Los Angeles is once again booming and the world is noticing!”
Made In Hollywood Honors is co-sponsored by O’Farrell, SAG-AFTRA, FILM L.A., Calif. Film Commission, Teamsters Local 399, Film Musicians Secondary Markets Fund, Producers Guild Of America, and 1600 Vine.
