What’s filming in Georgia in December 2022

A “Walking Dead” spinoff featuring Andrew Lincoln and Danai Gurira is set to start shooting in Atlanta on Jan. 6.

A “Walking Dead” spinoff featuring Andrew Lincoln and Danai Gurira is set to start shooting in Atlanta on Jan. 6.

It’s very close to Christmas vacation so the number of active productions is significantly lower than normal.

The current count on the Georgia film office is 27, down from the mid-40s in mid November. But it should bounce back in January.

Even then, it’s been a little quieter than a year ago, when a pandemic backlog was still in play.

An untitled “Walking Dead” spinoff featuring Andrew Lincoln and Danai Gurira is set to start shooting in Atlanta on Jan. 6 and is currently in pre-production, according to productionlist.com. Lincoln left the original “The Walking Dead” in 2018 after playing the lead Rick Grimes since the launch of the show in 2010.

At San Diego Comic-Con last year, the creators said they were planning six episodes. A seriously injured Rick was last seen season 9 being flown away by a helicopter, and Michonne left the show a season later after hearing Rick may still be alive. The original “Walking Dead” recently ended after 11 seasons.

A film about actress and singer Eartha Kitt is in pre-production and set to start Feb. 6 called “Eartha Kitt C’est Si Bon.”

And Tyler Perry is in pre-production on his new historical drama “Six Triple Eight,” which will split production between Atlanta and London. It’s about the first and only all Black, all female battalion to serve our country overseas during World War II. Production is set to begin Jan. 2.

The enduring VH1 reality series “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta” has also begun shooting its 11th season.

Two major scripted broadcast TV shows wrapped. “The Wonder Years” on ABC ended its second season shoot while “The Resident” on Fox just wrapped 13 episodes instead of 22 in past years. (The economics of TV has shifted to shorter seasons in general.) A new Paramount+ series “Wolf Pack,” which stars Sarah Michelle Gellar of “Buffy” fame, and a Snoop Dogg football film “The Underdoggs,” also finished up the past month.

The Georgia film office provides an ever-changing list of active productions, but it is not necessarily complete because production companies are not obligated to update the Georgia film office. And if a company requests the production stay off the list or use a pseudonym, the film office will oblige. I also glean some titles from productionlist.com and other sources. (Georgia does provide an alphabetical directory of every production it has ever kept track of here.)

There are also a flurry of other new reality shows listed with no defined network or streaming service attached.

Some productions listed by the film office are not using their actual names. “Holiday Road” is actually “The Family Plan” starring Mark Wahlberg for Apple TV+. “Perfect Imprints” is actually the new Disney “Blade” movie, which has been postponed until early 2023 as producers seek a new director. Netflix’s film “Electric State” is using the fake name “Stormwind.” “Eleven” for Apple TV+ is actually “Project Artemis” starring Channing Tatum and Scarlett Johansson.
