Britain's largest independent television production company, All3Media, will consolidate its Southern California studios in Westchester. The company behind such shows as “Undercover Boss” and “Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares” has agreed to rent two floors in a Howard Hughes Center office building near the 405 Freeway and Sepulveda Boulevard, real estate broker Jacob Bobek of Cushman & Wakefield said. The lease for 51,000 square feet is valued at $16 million, he said.
