A new report from California says Vancouver is one of the top competitors in the TV pilot industry.
Vancouver saw a 75 per cent increase, filming 25 pilots on the 2015-2016 cycle, compared to 12 the year before.
L.A. saw a decrease but was still number one with 79 pilots.
The report shows the multi-million dollar industry can employ more than 100 people for each project.
The city of Toronto is also mentioned, but Vancouver is considered a key place for the industry in Canada.
