Amazon MGM Studios’ new series Fallout is one of 12 television projects receiving $152m in tax credits from the California Film Commission.

The post-apocalyptic video game adaptation, which premieres on the streamer April 11, is relocating to California for its second series after production on the first series took place in New York, New Jersey and Utah.

Receiving a $25m tax credit, the second series is projected to be one of the relocating projects with the largest total qualified expenditures in the tax credit program’s history with around $153m in qualified expenditures and the employment of 170 cast and crew.  

Two Ryan Murphy projects are also receiving tax credits from the California Film Commission - ABC drama Dr. Odyssey starring Joshua Jackson and FX horror Grotesquerie starring Lesley Manville and Niecy Nash-Betts.

Other projects receiving tax credits include another Amazon series Untitled Task Force Special about undercover agents; CBS’ NCIS: Origins; and Latitude and The Pitt, both from Warner Bros Discovery.

The 12 projects, three of which are recurring, are estimated to spend around $1.1bn in California when they begin filming later this year as well as employing 2,300 crew, 2,300 cast and 50,000 background performers. Production also includes 39 shoot days planned outside of the Los Angeles 30-Mile Studio Zone in Oxnard, Ventura, Lancaster, and San Diego County.

Fallout, which is set in a post-apocalyptic Los Angeles and follows communities living underground to protect themselves, is the 33rd series to relocate to California since the program was launched in 2009.
