La Brea sequel to be filmed in Melbourne and surrounding areas in Victoria thanks to support from the Location Incentive.

25 January 2022

International hit La Brea is the latest series to be drawn back to Australia with more than $16 million in funding from the Australian Government's highly successful $540 million Location Incentive.

Following a successful first season filmed here in Australia that injected an estimated $71 million into the economy, the sequel continues the narrative about a massive sinkhole that mysteriously opens in Los Angeles, transporting a disparate group of strangers to an unexplainable primeval world.

The second season is expected to inject more than $118 million into the economy, create jobs for 390 Australian cast and crew, 1,000 local extras and use the services of around 800 local businesses.

To date, the Government has distributed more than $272 million under the Location Incentive to attract 28 international productions to Australia.

La Brea Season 1 will premiere in Australia later this year on 9Now, Channel 9's video on demand service.
