FROM THIS EPISODE

LA has hit a new low. This season fewer TV pilots than ever are shooting here in Hollywood. In an effort to lure producers back from other states and other countries, California lawmakers are considering extending and possibly increasing the state’s $100 million tax incentive program… but they’ve yet to decide on the bottom line. What price are we willing to pay to keep Hollywood in Hollywood?

Also, a new tuition aid program for middle-class students.

Financial Aid for Middle-Class Students 6 MIN, 57 SEC

Middle-class students in California often find themselves caught between two financial realities: Their parents make too much money for them to get financial aid, but too little to pay much — or sometimes anything — for college. But now middle income students can catch a break, thanks to a new and unusual state program that offers aid to families who earn up to $150,000 a year. Larry Gordon writes about higher education for the Los Angeles Times.
