Georgia is a hot spot for television production

The film industry has invaded the community of Peachtree City, Georgia, and is still growing in the surrounding area. On a recent trip to Peachtree City, Georgia, I took a side trip with the Southern Hollywood Film Tour and was amazed by the amount of television and film work being done there. Television favorites like AMC’s “Drop Dead Diva” and “The Walking Dead” are film at various locations around Peachtree City. In fact, the city Woodbury that was run by the villainous Governor in “The Walking Dead” is actually the quaint little City of Senoia (pronounced ‘sin-oy’) that was vacated for filming. Walking Dead fans can be found checking out the city daily and purchasing souvenirs at The Walking Dead Store at the top of the hill.

“Drop Dead Diva” is set in Los Angeles, but filmed in Peachtree City, Senoia and a large hanger at Falcon Field Airport. Movies, including “Sweet Home Alabama,” “Joyful Noise,” and parts of “Fried Green Tomatoes,” “Pet Sematary II” and “Driving Miss Daisy,” as well as numerous others, were filmed in Peachtree City and Senoia.

Raleigh Studios, which was once Riverwood Studios, home of “The Walking Dead” and “Drop Dead Diva” and over 20 film and television productions, has been the main filmmaker in the area. Now, Pinewood Studios has purchased 288 acres in Fayetteville, Georgia, just down the road from Peachtree City, and is brining even more of Hollywood and its celebrities to the area.

Georgia has now become one of the top five production destinations in the country because of its wide variation of landscapes and locations.
