Filming industry continues to grow in Coweta County


The boom in the motion-picture industry in Coweta and other parts of Georgia is showing no signs of slowing, according to the state’s chief film recruiter.

Lee Thomas, deputy commissioner at the Georgia Department of Economic Development and division director of the Georgia Film, Music & Digital Entertainment Office, predicts the industry will continue bringing new jobs, businesses and tourism to Coweta. She was the guest speaker Tuesday morning at the NuLink Early Bird Forum hosted by the Newnan-Coweta Chamber of Commerce.

Coweta is famous for AMC’s hit television series, “The Walking Dead,” and before that for the movie “Fried Green Tomatoes,” as well as various TV pilots and movies.
