California on Location Awards (COLAS)

Two Santa Clarita based shows were among the big winners at the 19th Annual California on Location Awards (COLAS) held on November 3rd at the Beverly Hilton. The COLAs are presented by the Film Liaisons in California Statewide (FLICS) and recognize film location professionals, production companies, and public employees for their excellence while working in the state of California.

The location team from CBS’s “NCIS” was named the “Location Team of the Year – TV Episodic (Body of Work)” for their excellent work over 10 seasons and the location team from FX’s “The Bridge” was named the “Location Team of the Year – TV Episodic (Single Episode or Season) for their outstanding work during their first season.” Both teams are shining examples of professional excellence and the Film Office is proud that both of these award-winning shows call Santa Clarita home.

The Film Office congratulates “NCIS,” “The Bridge” and all winners on their accomplishments.
