MTV Tr3s will tape its flagship show, "MiTRL," in Los Angeles for the first
time Sept. 10-11.

The program normally tapes in New York, but the channel's largest affiliate station, KBEH, is in Southern California. A thousand viewers who won admission to the taping will watch live performances from Alejandro Fernandez, RBD and Panda from L.A.'s California Plaza in an early celebration of Mexican independence, which is celebrated on Sept. 16.

The channel tapes its "Indie 101" show in Los Angeles and plans to increase its production in the market, beginning with "Beyond Borders: An MTV Tr3s Immigration Forum" on Sept. 21.
