Huge sinkhole drama ‘La Brea’ comes to Victoria via NBCUniversal

The state's biggest international production in a decade, 'La Brea' will see Melbourne double for LA in the story of a family separated by disaster.

Jobs, jobs, jobs for the locals. That’s the dominant message around the latest announcement from Film Victoria, the Victorian State Government and the Federal Minister for Communication and the Arts, as principal photography commences on La Brea in Melbourne’s crowded Docklands studios and surrounds.

This is the biggest international TV production to visit the state since Spielberg’s HBO series The Pacific wrapped in 2009.
