Some middle Georgia residents are seeing dollar signs as HBO films a new TV series in Macon.
WMAZ-TV reports production crews are preparing an area of downtown Macon to serve as a backdrop for “Watchmen,” a show based on the acclaimed DC Comics series from 1986.
The production means $150 a day for downtown resident Nick Tuz. He says he signed a contract with the production team to be paid for the inconvenience of filming near his apartment. Macon-Bibb County spokesman Chris Floore says the “Watchmen” team is paying more than $17,000 to film in Macon, and that doesn’t include payouts to affected businesses and residents such as Tuz.
