Reality TV and advertising, which includes commercials and still photography, picked up speed during the summer filming season, according to a new report released by FilmLA. But scripted TV and features fared worse. 

The report is tracking film production in Los Angeles, which looks at film permit activity and shoot days in different neighborhoods. Today on AirTalk, we discuss the report’s findings. We also want to hear from listeners who work in either TV or film production. Are you back to work? What has your experience been? Join the conversation by calling 866-893-5722.
