Georgia has been a Southern base for Hollywood, thanks to generous tax credits. Netflix filmed “Stranger Things” and “Ozark” in the state; Disney made “Black Panther” and “Avengers: Endgame” there. Disney and Netflix described their positions in terms of their employees, saying workers (read: stars and high-profile talent) might not want to work in Georgia under such a law.
