Georgia is quickly taking over the TV and film industry. Here are the 29 movies and TV shows filming in Georgia this January 2020.

Georgia’s film industry is on fire. Here’s what’s filming and what’s going on in and around Atlanta.

Producers are still hiring and casting directors are continuously looking for the right talent to work on TV shows and movies filming across the state.

Stranger Things is one of the biggest TV shows still filming in Atlanta, Georgia. Meanwhile, Georgia’s film industry is facing a boycott following the election of Brian Kemp as governor. Kemp, who served as the Secretary of State and oversaw the election, has been accused of voter suppression leading up to the election. Some of Hollywood’s biggest influencers, actors, models, and talent are calling for a boycott of Georgia’s booming film industry. For example, Frank Rich, the executive producer of HBO’s VEEP, said, “If Kemp wins in Georgia, Hollywood should put its money where its mouth is and pull all production out of the state,” Rich tweeted.

Understanding Georgia Film Tax Credit:

A state tax credit was signed into law in 2008 giving productions up to a 30 percent tax break by filming in Georgia. This incentive was enough to convince Hollywood producers to film in Georgia.

Big productions such as The Hunger Games, The Walking Dead and Divergent helped boost Georgia’s film industry. In fact, small cities are now being used as filming locations. Producers are searching and finding small towns across Georgia to film their TV shows. The small town of Senoia, Georgia has transformed since The Walking Dead set up a location in the small town.

Dead Silent Season 4

Transporting viewers into what Investigation Discovery calls “a vortex of dark mystery and psychological terror,” the docuseries “Dead Silent” delves into actual stories of crimes set in desolate locations. Hourlong episodes portray just how dark and dreary the great outdoors can be when a person is deep in the woods, inside an abandoned house, or along the shores of a sleepy lake, and every snap of a twig and unidentified rustle can be a sign of danger. ID’s signature storytelling interweaves commentary from local authorities, true-crime experts, and psychologists, plus first-person accounts from survivors of these crimes.

Dish Nation Season 8

Personalities from the country’s most-popular radio shows in major markets present their takes on pop culture, celebrity scandals and the news of the day. “Dish Nation” focuses on the comedic side of the breaking entertainment news format.

Dynasty

Told primarily through the perspectives of two women at odds — Fallon Carrington, daughter of billionaire Blake Carrington; and her soon-to-be stepmother, Cristal, a Hispanic woman marrying into the WASP family — “Dynasty” not only features the glitz and gloss of extreme wealth, but also exposes the dark underbelly of a corrupt world built on backroom deals.

The Suicide Squad (El Dorado)

Details for the project have not been released. However, according to reports, the upcoming “Suicide Squad” feature film is filming under the code name “El Dorado”. It’s currently unknown what the story will revolve around, but this title could give us a little clue.

James Gunn will work as the writer and director for “The Suicide Squad” and will follow David Ayer’s 2016 film “Suicide Squad”. However, instead of being a sequel to the Ayer production, this is described as a new perspective to the franchise from the mind of Gunn that will feature a mix of new and old characters.

Viola Davis is coming back to play Amanda Waller, while Margot Robbie is set to reprise her role of Harley Quinn. Jai Courtney and Joel Kinnaman will be returning to play Captain Boomerang and Rick Flagg, respectively.

That said, Idris Elba will be replacing Will Smith but will play a new character and not Deadshot. Deadshot has been written out of the movie but may return in the future with Will Smith returning.
