With more productions wrapping this past month than starting up, there was a relative drop in active TV shows and films in the state of Georgia this year versus a year go when there was still a pandemic-fueled backlog.

There are about 41 productions in play right now, based in part on Georgia film office calculations and other sources. A year ago, there were 55 active TV shows and films.

Not much notable started up except a CW DC spin-off “Gotham Knights,” though two big-budget films wrapped: Nicole Kidman’s Netflix comedy “A Family Affair” and Disney+’s Lil Rel Howery “Dashing Through the Snow.”

Other major productions still happening include Netflix’s “A Man in Full” with Jeff Daniels and Diane Lane, “The Electric State” with Millie Bobby Brown, Chris Pratt, Michelle Yeoh and Stanley Tucci, and Fox medical drama “The Resident.”

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 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.)

Some productions listed by the film office are not using their actual names. “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.” “Wise Guy” is Disney+’s “Ironheart” starring Dominique Thorne.

The film office also lists an Apple TV+ feature film titled “Eleven,” but that appears to be a pseudonym.
