Don’t you love how Georgia is quickly turning into its own Hollywood? In 30 years we may look back at this point and feel elated for being here during its incision, the Peach State is the best!
This time last year, there were 27 productions filming in Georgia. Now, heading into 2017 there are 37 new TV shows and movies setting up in the Peach State.
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 location in the small town.
So what’s next? In November, Pinewood studios announced they will be doubling the size of their studios, expanding the Georgia Film Industry, making it one of the biggest studios in the United States.
Here is the full list of TV Shows filming in Georgia.
