‘Ugly Betty’ Bill passes in California

by Lynn Little

onlocation2 California is fighting back to once again look appealing to filmmakers. The California Assembly passed a bill that’s being called the ‘Ugly Betty’ Bill that will give $500 million in incentives over the next five years It’s been dubbed the ‘Ugly Betty’ Bill because the ABC show moved production to New York to take advantage of several incentives from the state of New York.

California is in a pickle when it comes to finances and has held off passing such a bill. But the state has finally decided that they should do this to compete. California used to be the place to go but now so many states and even Canada offering incentives for filmmakers.

‘Ugly Betty’ belongs in New York and having New York as their backdrop for many scenes has really added to the show. I can’t imagine that ABC would move the show again. But we are talking about show business, so I guess anything can happen.
