Georgia is now considered one of the top five states in the country for film and TV production with more than 274 projects shot in the state since July 2010, reports the AJC.com.
TV shows shot in Georgia include BET’s “The Game,” MTV’s “Teen Wolf,” the Discovery Channel’s “Auction Kings” and AMC’s critically-acclaimed hit shot “The Walking Dead,” which is currently filming its second season in metro Atlanta. “The Walking Dead” is also set in Atlanta.
Movies filmed in the Georgia are premiering throughout the summer and fall. They include this weekend’s “X-Men: First Class” to October’s remake of “Footloose.”
Other Georgia-based films slated to be released include “The Change-Up” starring Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman and “Wanderlust” with Jennifer Anniston and Paul Rudd.
The economic impact of the filming is estimated at $2.1 billion.
