Hollywood is a neighbourhood in Los Angeles, situated west-northwest of Downtown Los Angeles. Due to its fame and cultural identity as the historical centre of movie studios and movie stars, the word "Hollywood" is often used as a metonymy of American cinema.
On January 22, 1947, the first commercial television station west of the Mississippi River, KTLA, began operating in Hollywood. In December of that year, The Public Prosecutor became the first network television series to be filmed in Hollywood. And in the 1950s, music recording studios and offices began moving into Hollywood. Other businesses, however, continued to migrate to different parts of the Los Angeles area, primarily to Burbank. Much of the movie industry remained in Hollywood, although the district's outward appearance changed.
