DONATE TO THE SHOW AND SUPPORT ATLANTA FILM:
The health of the Georgia film industry is dependent on a number of factors, and one huge factor is who is running the state. Under Governor Nathan Deal's leadership the industry has flourished and become a heavy hitter in the world for places to film.
But Nathan's time is up. So what now? We traveled to Democratic nominee Stacey Abrams' HQ to see what she has in store should she win. She discusses tax credits, what Georgia stories she'd like to see made, and surprises us (and her staff) but disclosing she briefly worked as a PA!
