Louisiana wants to bring Hollywood back to the state.

Next week, officials will travel to California to meet with motion picture executives to lure more production in the state.  “Louisiana has been a major production destination since we were one of the first states to adopt an incentive program in 2002,” Gov. Edwards said. “The enhancements that we made to the program have created stability for Louisiana’s budget, and also created certainty for the industry we are seeking to attract. More importantly, this program provides more opportunities for companies to invest in Louisiana and hire our residents for well-paying, full-time jobs.”

Several  recurring TV series have recently been shot here including,  NCIS: New Orleans, Cloak & Dagger, Claws and Queen Sugar . In the past three years, Louisiana’s motion picture production incentive has attracted productions that have estimated spending of more than $1.29 billion in Louisiana, including $634 million on Louisiana resident payroll.

The delegation will meet with executives from CBS, Netflix and Sony as well as others.
