Peachtree City, Georgia, may be a far cry from Hollywood, but the film industry has made a lasting impression on the City! Recently a street sign was erected officially designating one of the city’s newest streets “Diva Drive.”
DROP DEAD DIVA’s guest star roster for the first season included Liza Minnelli, Delta Burke, Tim Gunn, Paula Abdul and Rose O’donnell, among others.
DDD is not the first time high-budget filming has found its way to our picturesque city – ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ with Reese Witherspoon is among some of the more notable filming that has taken place.

GEORGIA ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY INVESTMENT ACT
On May 12, 2008 Governor Sonny Purdue signed into law the Georgia Entertainment Industry Investment Act, boosting the state tax credit for qualified production and post production expenditures by as much as 30 percent. It is available not only to traditional motion picture projects such as feature films, television series, commercials and music videos, but also innovative new industries such as game development and animation.
The Georgia Entertainment Industry Act offers and across the board flat tax credit of 20 percent based on a minimum investment of $500,000 on qualified productions in Georgia. An additional 10 percent Georgia Entertainment Promotion (GEP) uplift can be earned by including an embedded animated Georgia logo on approved projects.
