Vancouver rounds out the top three for drama, hosting six US pilots this spring.

Atlanta is set to host just two drama pilots, despite being one of the main US production hubs for film and TV production.

Spy comedy drama Whiskey Cavalier will shoot its pilot in Prague and is the only US pilot project to film outside the US this season.

The stats mark a change from last year when Los Angeles was level with New York, Atlanta and Vancouver. A lack of international production is consistent, with just a couple of US pilots filmed overseas for the past three years.
