A new $100 million film and television complex planned in Covington will be an amenity-filled “Google-esque” campus.
According to this week’s Atlanta Business Chronicle, Three Ring Studios, the brainchild of Atlanta serial entrepreneur Rahim Charania, will be a 160-acre sound stage development with three campuses, a green screen, a backlot and Georgia’s first game development campus. It’s expected to open by the end of 2018 and will be the latest studio project in Atlanta’s fast-growing $7 billion movie and TV industry.
The new studio will be a welcome development in metro Atlanta because lots of shows are currently scouting for studio space, said Lee Thomas, deputy commissioner of the Georgia Department of Economic Development’s Film, Music & Digital Entertainment office.
