Three Georgia counties have joined a growing partnership that officials in southeast Georgia say will attract more film and television projects to the region.

The Brunwsick News reports that Libert, McInstosh and Charlton counties will join the Coastal Georgia Film Alliance. They will join Camden and Glynn counties in the partnership.

Barbara Ryan is an executive at the alliance. She highlighted the USA Network's TV series "Royal Pains" recent venture into the region. The show filmed two episodes last year on Camden and Glynn locations. The new counties, she said, will expand the venues that the alliance can offer producers.

Georgia is among several states that have adopted generous tax credits to attract the television and film industry.
