Earlier this year, Netflix content officer Ted Sarandos told The Wrap the behemoth would cut back on chasing tax credits in other states and countries and focus on “building infrastructure” in Los Angeles.
But with a $6 billion commitment this year for 1,000 hours plus of original programming, there is plenty of production to go around outside of Los Angeles.
Netflix, ,which has already shot “Stranger Things” and “Ozark” in metro Atlanta, has committed to at least four other shows locally, according to the state’s film office.
“Georgia is still one of the most attractive destinations to do a film and TV series,” said Ric Reitz, president of SAG-AFTRA Atlanta. “California is entitled to do its own strategy as well as New York. Georgia has a strategy. We’re thrilled Netflix continues to pick Georgia as a destination.”
