Premium Cable Network Showtime has relocated its West Coast headquarters from Westwood’s Oppenheimer Tower to The Lot Studios in West Hollywood, according to multiple published reports.
The 50,000-square-foot space will house 125 employees along the east side of the campus at Santa Monica Boulevard and Formosa Avenue. Showtime is joining the Oprah Winfrey Network, which relocated its headquarters to The Lot in 2014.

The other two additions to the campus include the 108,000-square-foot Formosa West building, completed in 2017, and the 98,000-square-foot Courtyard Building, which is now under construction.
