The series, which likely will premiere mid-season on the CW network, will film at the Arizona location due to tax incentives offered by the state and for the right-to-work law that eliminates union restrictions, the Arizona Republic said.
"We're excited to have these types of projects come into the valley, especially a series, because each episode brings jobs into Arizona," said Arizona Department of Commerce spokesman David Drennon.
"Palms" revolves around 15-year-old Johnny Miller, played by Michael Cassidy, who moves to Palm Springs after his father's suicide and slowly begins to question the motives of his neighbors.
