WTH does that have to do with the topic at hand?

You're missing my point, which is to do that would come at a great impact to the bottom line. They must be mindful of this when considering such a move.

Senoia is in Coweta County.

Whatever. Split hairs all you want. Neither one looks like where the current seasons are supposedly set.

Um, my friends husband works on this and she told me about 6 months ago that they were going to pull the filming from here, at least that is what they had been told would probably occur. It had nothing to do with the new bill. Timing is convenient though.

It’s all posturing. Everyone should realize it. Worst case scenario it does to the Supreme Court.

Drama like politics always is. But it keeps us in high post counts here so that is awesome!

BTW, if you don't think it can happen, look no further than NC after they passed the Bathroom Bill.
The TV/film industry in NC had already been on a heavy downswing when HB2 passed; it was the state legislature's refusal to sustain the incentives program that was largely responsible for that.

Unless the extremists running the state suddenly have a change of heart and repeal it, there's no reason why it wouldn't go into effect.

This is why I said the chasing entertainment productions as a substantial portion of the economy is a bad idea. Georgia might be "changing", but so are Florida and North Carolina. However, the majority of the elected officials in these Southern states are still too mercurial to trust to not make bad decisions which will impede the sustainability of "liberal arts" type of economic investments. Virginia is the only state that is a "safe" bet in the South.
