Georgia is quickly taking over the TV and Film Industry. Here are the 23 movies and TV shows filming in Georgia this June.
Last August, Georgia had over 40 TV shows and movies filming in the area. However, this June the number of TV shows and movies filming in Atlanta have dropped nearly 50 percent since August 2015. But, that doesn’t mean the number of job opportunities have decreased. In fact, Marvel has unofficially called Atlanta home by filming the last three Marvel movies in Atlanta with another three movies coming soon. It’s important to point out that, Georgia has no plans of slowing down.
Shannon Mall in Union City and South Fulton County, Atlanta is currently being demolished to make room for a new movie studio. The project is an example of how more movie and TV productions are coming to metro Atlanta thanks to the state’s tax incentives for the TV and movie industry.
The project is another example of more movie and production coming to metro Atlanta thanks to state tax incentives for the movie industry. “There are constantly producers who are looking to come here.

In addition, a new mega-movie studio has opened in Gwinnett County Georgia that is being called “beautiful” and a “state of the art facility”. The biggest benefit to this new movie studio is the fact that it will add new jobs.
What is even better is that without weather delays, there will be more opportunity for more production. More production means more jobs and a bigger boost to the surrounding community.
“Yes, we’re adding jobs,” said Economos. “Yes we’re adding a lot of support business. We’ve met with over 10 different vendors that will be working with Eagle Rock Studios Atlanta. So just the trickle-down effect will be fantastic for this area.” [via]
Georgia is also planning on turning the Civic Center into another movie studio as well. The project plans include film and television studios surrounded by a performing arts center, a hotel, and a mix of residential, office and retail space, which could transform the downtown Civic Center property into a regional tourist destination. It is one of the more ambitious concepts to emerge so far as the city prepares to put the 19-acre Boisfeuillet Jones Atlanta Civic Center site on the market – yet another project that demonstrates the booming film & television industry here in Georgia.
In November, Pinewood studios announced they will be doubling the size of their studios, expanding the Georgia Film Industry.
