‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ is finally back in production for season 14

Georgia is picking up where it left off in early December with a raft of new and returning film and TV productions. The Georgia film office has 50 active productions listed as of January 15.

Zachary Levi is back in Georgia starring in a new children’s movie, “Harold and the Purple Crayon,” after shooting “American Underdog” and the second “Shazam” in the state. He is joined by Lil Rel Howery, who recently shot the Hulu movie “Vacation Friends” in Georgia.

Two hardy reality shows on Bravo have begun production: the ninth season of “Married to Medicine” and the 14th season of “Real Housewives of Atlanta.” This is the longest delay between seasons for “The Real Housewives” since it debuted in 2008. The show normally starts in May or June but Bravo pushed back season 14 by six months. Since season 13, two major cast members have left: Porsha Williams and Cynthia Bailey.

Chris Dowd is starring in the new Apple TV+ comedy series “Big Door Prize” while Jessica Biel is shooting a new Hulu series in metro Atlanta called “Candy.”

Disney+ has a new series it’s calling “Pop Tart” on the Georgia film office’s website but that is a pseudonym for a “Guardians of a Galaxy” holiday special. “Hot Christmas” listed on the page is the Marvel film “Guardians in the Galaxy Vol. 3.”

Shows that wrapped in the past month included Netflix’s “Cobra Kai,” NBC’s “Ordinary Joe” and NBC’s “Young Rock.”

The Georgia film office provides a live, ever-changing list of active productions, but it is not necessarily complete because production companies voluntarily inform the Georgia film office of what is happening. They are not obligated to do so. And if a company requests the production stay off the list, the film office will oblige.
