Ballers is making a big move for its third season. The upcoming season of the HBO series, which stars Dwayne Johnson, will not be shot in Florida. Deadline reported that the series’ production will make a cross-country move to California.
Why the big move?
Deadline revealed that Ballers is one of the series to earn money for production through the California Tax Incentive program. California is giving $8.3 million for the production of season three of the series.
The move to California will “result in the employment of 135 cast members plus 209 base crew and 5,700 extras. To further stroke the bottom line, the commission says that could generate up to $33.5 million in paychecks to below-the-line workers and hiring in-state vendors.”
Ballers will return to HBO this summer. Are you a fan of this HBO series? Tell us what you think.
