TV is moving back to Hollywood, but even more so to England and Canada, New Zealand and South Africa.
More of what you watch is made overseas (where is the sea between us and Canada?) even if you think it takes place in the good ol' USA.
Costs, film incentives, currency fluxuations, and excellent crafts and facilities. SAG-AFTRA is world wide for its members, so the number of SAG-AFTRA workers does not decrease (by much) but Britts can use an Equity buy out contract and in Canada has its own two performance unions.
When it moved from CBS to the CW, "Supergirl" was forced to relocate where most of the CW programs are shot, in Canada. Shooting multiple studios for the same company creates an economy of scale, plus Canada has film incentives and a local hire mandate.
It could be England will market even stronger to create and attract productions intended for the American Market. The decision to exit the European Union will have an impact on British production, which has relied on the flexibility of both the British Commonwealth and the European Union for use of facilities in Great Britain and on the continent. The ability of staff and creatives to move country to country may be impacted by Britain leaving the European Union (EU).
No one knows for sure.
As for LA...how long can California, Los Angeles County, the City of Los Angeles and local associations offer the deep pocket incentives they are using to lure TV and film away from those of us who live in other states, much less other countries? So far the incentive has cost California taxpayers millions of dollars, but the pride of being the true Entertainment Capital and the company town feeling of LA have countered that to some extent.
Production remains strong in New York, Georgia, New Orleans and other markets outside of LA but for how long.
