‘Scream Queens’ season 2 will be shot in Los Angeles, not New Orleans


It looks like another Ryan Murphy TV series is moving to Los Angeles.

According to THR, the Fox TV series Scream Queens is moving to Los Angeles, California from New Orleans, Louisiana to take advantage of the state’s new film credits.

The series follows in the footsteps of one of Murphy’s other series, American Horror Story which also left New Orleans for L.A. for the same reason last year.

California recently expanded the Film & Television Tax Credit Program to include nine new projects that will receive $37.6 million in tax credits and generate $313 million in direct in-state spending, including $121 million in wages to below-the-line crew members.


HBO’s Westworld, Amazon’s Good Girls Revolt, USA’s Shooter and Showtime’s I’m Dying Up Here also cashed in on the credit. The pilot for Good Girls Revolt was shot in NYC, while the Shooter pilot was filmed in Vancouver.

Pilots selected for the program include Jason Katims’ Bunker Hill for CBS, as well as Hulu’s  Citizen and Four Star.

As THR explains, “the expanded tax credit program allocates funding in ‘buckets’ for different production categories, including non-independent feature films, indie projects and TV projects.”
