Thus, it is home to a surprisingly thriving industry, with local and national filmmakers alike taking advantage of the opportunities offered here. Among the many films that have done filming in Georgia are Lawless, Trouble With the Curve, Zombieland, Due Date, and Forrest Gump, among others. Additionally, numerous popular television series have done shooting here, among them The Vampire Diaries, The Walking Dead, and more recently NBC's action/drama series Revolution.
