LIST: Film and TV industry impacts of Georgia’s heartbeat abortion law

Here is a list of responses, including projects that have been withdrawn and leaders who have sworn to boycott the state:

ATLANTA — Georgia’s film industry has exploded in recent years, turning the state into “first filming location in the world.”

A bold fiscal policy helped spur the creation of approximately 92,000 jobs statewide and generated billions in spending.

The Peach State is now better known as Southern Hollywood – or “Y’allywood”.

At least part of that, however, was put in jeopardy with the death of HB 481 – the “heartbeat” abortion lawone of the strictest in the country.

The backlash from entertainment industry figures has been swift and harsh.

Here is a list of responses, including projects that have been withdrawn and leaders who have sworn to boycott the state:

Barb and Star go to Vista del Mar– Film – Kristen Wiig/Annie Mumolo/Lionsgate: Was at pre-production and scouting locations in Georgia.

The power” – TV – Reed Morano/Amazon: I was scouting places around Savannah.
