Tyler Perry Reveals His New Studio in Atlanta


Tyler Perry reveals the home of the new studio in Atlanta, Georgia.

Tyler Perry has revealed that he’s opening a new Atlanta studio, four months after purchasing the previously closed Fort McPherson army base.

Tyler Perry announced his plans through posts on his Facebook and Twitter accounts with a photo of a sign saying “The Future Home of Tyler Perry Studios.”

“4 months ago I bought Fort McPherson Army Base,” he wrote. “It’s the future home of the new Tyler Perry Studios. I’ll keep you posted on the progress, but just know that I’d like to thank all of you. From the 30 people who showed up for my first play 20 years ago, to the millions who stand with me faithfully today, ‘Thank you.’ This dream belongs to all of us. My prayer for you is that everything that you have sewn into my life will come back to you 100 fold. Here we grow again!!!”

Fort McPherson is only five miles away from Tyler Perry’s current studio in southwest Atlanta. Tyler Perry only paid $26 million for the 488-acre property, which was closed in 2011.

The current Tyler Perry Studios was founded in 2006 by the playwright turned actor. The previous facility includes 200,000 square feet of sets, office space, and is expected remain open even after Tyler Perry finishes building the new studio.
