The new CBS All Access “Star Trek” series focusing on Patrick Stewart’s iconic Jean-Luc Picard character has been named as one of the shows that has been accepted into the latest round of California’s ongoing Film & TV Tax Credit program.

It, along with CBS All Access’ “Why Women Kill” and HBO’s “Flowers of Helvetica,” are all new shows which will be produced in California, and join six recurring series that are already filming in the state under the program as part of its fourth year.

Those six? FX’s “American Horror Story” and “Mayans, M.C.,” Freeform’s “Good Trouble,” Fox’s “The Orville,” ABC’s “The Rookie” and CBS All Access’ “Strange Angel” round out the six. The tax credits for all nine productions totals $90 million according to the California Film Commission and it is believed the chances of further renewals of these various projects increases greatly with this news.

There are reportedly twenty-one recurring TV series in various stages of production currently in the program and eligible for tax credits.
