Georgia-filmed Instant Family has made a major impact on the Georgia economy.

The Viacom and Paramount Pictures invested over $52 million in Georgia while filming the movie.

“On top of being the best state in the country in which to do business for six straight years, Georgia is now the number one filming location in the United States,” said Senator David Perdue (R-GA). “We’re proud to partner with Viacom and Paramount Pictures to bring thousands of jobs and economic opportunities to Georgia. Congratulations to the cast, crew, and director Sean Anders on bringing Instant Family’s powerful story to the big screen.”
