In recent weeks, two major Hollywood film studios signed separate leases for portions of this year and next so they can shoot projects in Central Texas, according to multiple sources.

Home Box Office Inc., or HBO, has leased 110,000 square feet — about the size of a big-box store — at Kyle Crossing, located at 1980 Kohlers Crossing in the Hays County city of Kyle, while Netflix Inc. (Nasdaq: NFLX) signed on for about 20,000 square feet in East Austin, sources said.

It’s also unclear how many employees will be stationed at each location. No Austin jobs were posted on either company’s website as of July 30.

This is not HBO’s first rodeo in Lockhart. It shot the series “The Leftovers” in the small town about 30 miles south of Austin in 2016.

Netflix projects filmed or produced in Austin include “6 Years” (independent feature film), the first season of the animated horror series “Castlevania” and “Mr. Roosevelt” (independent feature film).

HBO and Netflix have also brought productions to other Texas cities, so setting up shop for a one-off production is routine.
