Tyler Perry is looking to reopen his 330-acre Atlanta-based mega studio soon, but other studios in Georgia are anxiously waiting for Hollywood's green light to return back to work.

Perry plans on restarting production at the Tyler Perry Studios complex in July, making it one of the first studios to domestically reopen after production was halted a few months ago to combat the spread of the coronavirus.

The Fulton County District Attorney's Office will honor two men at Wednesday night's commencement for the state's first Conviction Integrity Unit.
