Georgia, Metro Atlanta’s Rising Importance in Film
Georgia & the Metro Atlanta area have long been hotbeds of thriving commerce, innovation, and creative artistry. For years, “Hotlanta” was known throughout the country as perhaps the premiere player in popular music’s hip-hop scene. It certainly didn’t hurt the cities growing reputation that such prominent television production companies like Turner Broadcasting also made their home in the Peach State. With obvious incentives like the world’s largest international airport, diverse terrain & infrastructure, and an effective municipal push to make Georgia more attractive to film makers, it’s easy to understand how and why Georgia’s prominence in the film industry grew. To say that Georgia has become a very important part of the television & movie production would be quite an understatement. In fact, according to the latest filming records, Georgia is now the #3 state in the entire U.S. for film production, behind only California and New York.
Robbie (Comedy Central)
From the hilariously twisted minds of Rory Scovel (known previously for I Feel Pretty and Rory Scovel Tries Stand Up for the First Time) and Anthony King (known best for Broad City and Silicon Valley) comes Comedy Central’s newest comedy hit: Robbie. In Robbie, Scovel portrays a youth league basketball coach who lives in his hometown, tucked firmly underneath his own Father’s (Beau Bridges) shadow…at least until his own son displays the kind of greatness to help propel Scovel out of his murky situation. Robbie is produced by Gary Sanchez Productions, which boasts such comedy royalty as Will Ferrell and Adam McKay, among others. Robbie has enjoyed enormous growth in all of Comedy Central’s most coveted demographics, and that trend looks to continue into next year, when filming will commence right here in Douglas County, in the areas surrounding our very own Deerlick Park.
The story surrounds the lead character named Delon Elliot who is played by RJ Cyler. This 3rd season of Scream was filmed in the Atlanta area including Douglas County High School and The Old Courthouse in Douglasville. Delon is a star running back for his high school football team and in this series his unfortunate past comes back to haunt him, which puts his friends at risk and his dreams for the future.
