Growth in content providers creates new demand for soundstage facilities

Relativity Architects' Partner Tima Bell discusses how the explosion in content providers has outpaced the availability of TV and film production soundstages in North America and Europe.


January 27, 2022

Last year, the number of scripted TV series available in the U.S. on all viewing platforms hit a record 559, representing a 13% jump from 2020, according to research conducted by the cable network FX. That number only includes English-language series, and also doesn’t account for the hundreds of movies that were released in theaters and on streaming services last year. During the pandemic, Americans’ demand for new content became insatiable. The quandary for producers these days is finding an available soundstage in which to make their products. The opportunity for developers and investors is in building new ones, and readapting other spaces.

Joining us today to talk about the dynamics driving this soundstage phenomena is Tima Bell, a Partner with Relativity Architects in Los Angeles, which has a dhistory of soundstage design.
