“The City of Palm Springs is proud to welcome HBO Films, Steven Soderbergh, Michael Douglas, and Matt Damon to our city,” said Mayor Steve Pougnet. “Just two hours from Los Angeles, Palm Springs is one of the most film friendly cities in California and we’re thrilled that HBO has decided to shoot in the city that Liberace loved like no place else!”
