Black Widow Movie And J.J. Abrams, Jordan Peele Series Among What’s Filming In Georgia

Aug 5, 2019

It’s where The Walking Dead roam the earth.  It’s Black Panther’s home away from Wakanda, and it’s the only spot where Donald Glover’s Atlanta rightfully could be made.  It’s Y’allywood!

It’s hard to keep track of the TV shows and movies filming in Georgia, so The Credits podcast host Kalena Boller occasionally stops by On Second Thought with an update.  She’s moderating a podcasting panel at the Macon Film Festival Aug. 17. It’s called "Making Room at the Table: Women in Georgia’s Film Industry."
