Georgia is quickly taking over the TV and film industry. Here are the 37 movies and TV shows filming in Georgia this May.
Georgia has quickly became the “Hollywood of the Soapriluth”. In little less than a decade, more movies and TV shows are filming in the Peach state than most places around the world. In fact, a recent study has put Georgia as the third largest film industry in the world only behind the United Kingdom. And with the recent BREXIT issues, expect Georgia’s film industry to only grow and possibly become the number 1 filmmaking location in the world.
In 2007 the Georgia Film, Music and Digital Entertainment office reported an economic impact of $241 million for all of the film and TV productions in Georgia. In 2015, the same office reported an economic impact of $7 billion. That is one huge bump.
This time last year, there were 27 productions filming in Georgia. Now, heading into 2017 there are 34 new TV shows and movies setting up shop in the Peach State.
