All Georgia counties now deemed ready for Hollywood

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia officials say all of the state's 159 counties are now ready for a turn in the Hollywood spotlight.

The state Film, Music and Digital Entertainment Office announced Monday that in just four years all Georgia counties have taken part in its Camera Ready Community Program. Being designated "camera ready" means counties have designated liaisons prepared to assist movie and TV producers looking for local filming locations.

The state film office says more than 158 movie and TV productions spent $1.4 billion shooting in Georgia during the most recent fiscal year.
