TV shows and movies currently filming in Georgia

'American Soul,' 'Respect,' 'Cobra Kai' and 'The Resident' are in production right now!

ATLANTA — With Thanksgiving holiday just a few days away, production crews are hard at work on more than 40+ TV shows and movies throughout Georgia.

Here’s a look at what’s currently filming throughout the state:


The highly-anticipated biopic on the life of legendary soul singer Aretha Franklin is currently in production in Atlanta.

Academy Award winner Jennifer Hudson stars in the movie alongside Marlon Wayans.

“Respect” will feature the untold story about the star’s rise to stardom. So far, it appears that the basecamp sign used as the working title for this movie is “QOS”. So, if you see the production in your neighborhood, please tell The A-Scene Facebook group.

Hudson, revealed that the movie is currently being filmed at Tyler Perry Studios.

"It was exciting enough to sing for @tylerperry studio opening and I’m just as excited to shoot here today ! #Respect," she wrote.

Last week, producers were casting new skilled musicians to be actors for upcoming scenes for the project.


Producers are still plugging away at the third season of the hit FOX medical drama, "The Resident," throughout parts of Georgia.

Last week, The A-Scene told you about a casting call for a shoot that took place on Monday. 

Over the weekend, a viewer reported seeing the production in action. A-Scene Insider Susan Wages spotted several production trucks, trailers, and crews setting up sets in Monroe, Georgia.

“Filming for the resident in Monroe,” Wages wrote in the A-Scene Facebook group.

"The Resident" got picked up for a third season in early May. You will likely spot the production in your neighborhood under the yellow basecamp sign “TR”.

The majority of the first and second seasons were filmed in Conyers and at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta.

“The Resident” follows a young doctor who’s paired with a senior resident that is as tough as he is brilliant. It stars Matt Czuchry, Emily VanCamp, Manish Dayal and Bruce Greenwood.

Production remains underway for the second season of "American Soul."

"Inspired by the personal trials and professional successes of a young, ambitious and troubled impresario Don Cornelius, season two of the period drama picks up two years later in 1975," a rep from BET tells The A-Scene. "As Don becomes a rising star, he continues to manage an assortment of spectacular talent that comes to his show, a shaky family life, personal health and perhaps most importantly, his own ego."

The basecamp for American Soul has been set up in Midtown since late August. We caught up with a man whose vintage car was being used for upcoming scenes.

Last week, 11Alive’s digital reporter Donovan Harris visited the set of BET’s “American Soul”. Check out his story reporting on the action from behind the scenes here.


If you’re curious of what life would be like if you had another spouse? Well, this may be the casting call for you.

Earlier this summer, producers began a search for families in the area. If you do get selected, don’t forget to let The A-Scene know in our Facebook group!
