Georgia is quickly taking over the TV and Film Industry. Here are the 39 movies and TV shows filming in Georgia this May.
Last August, Georgia had over 40 TV shows and movies filming in the area.
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. The issue right this minute is that if you are a large-scale film and television content creator, there are no other spaces,” said Ed Richardson of Atlanta Metro Studios of Union City.
According to reports, the Atlanta City Council signed off on a deal that would allow for Tyler Perry to turn much of Fort McPherson into a movie studio.
Tyler Perry wants to use the base to expand the number of studio facilities he currently owns and operates. Currently, Tyler Perry owns over 1000 acre property which features five sound stages, a post-production facility and a 400-seat theater in Southwest Atlanta.
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.
Here is the full list of TV Shows filming in Georgia.
