From CNN Business:
Georgia has become one of the top locations for film and TV productions over the past decade. Bolstered by hefty tax credits and a diverse topography that can stand in for a variety of settings, the state has provided the backdrop for shows like "The Walking Dead," "Atlanta" and "Stranger Things," as well as films like "Black Panther," "Avengers: Infinity War" and "The Hunger Games."
So in May, when Netflix said it would "rethink" its investment in Georgia
if a new restrictive abortion law went into effect,
it was putting its business interests on the line.
That statement, attributed to Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos, was the first by a major company to oppose the law. It opened the floodgates, spurring other large studios to follow suit.
