Television & Film

In recent years, Georgia has become a hotbed of film and television projects. McDonough is a dynamic venue for any type of filmed entertainment. The City features a historic Square and neighborhoods, diverse housing and business types, rural landscapes, and a film-friendly atmosphere.

Recent projects filmed in McDonough include Tyler Perry’s “A Madea Christmas” and ABC Television’s “Resurrection.”

The City adopted a Media Production Ordinance to provide a framework to successfully partner with media entities. Please review the ordinance and application materials linked below:

Permitting is required for most film and television productions on public and private property. News media, personal (family) filming events, and those projects that take place in a licensed studio business within the city limits are exempt from permitting requirements.

Henry County may also be helpful in finding unique locations for film projects. Please contact the Henry County Camera Ready office for more details at
