Triple Horse Studios to Construct Major Film Studio in Covington, GA

Georgia is now a significant player in the world of television and movie production.

The last 30 days have seen announcements to build major film studios in Georgia by mega-producer Tyler Perry, Pinewood Studios, and Medient Studios.

We can now add Triple Horse to the list.

The Georgia-based film and production company has announced it will build five large filming stages at a cost of $38 million. The facilities will be located in Newton County about 30 miles east of Atlanta.

The expansion is expected to immediately create 35 full-time jobs and will likely create hundreds of part-time and temporary positions with production projects.

Georgia had over $3 billion worth of film related projects during 2012.

Newton County once the home to popular television shows In the Heat of the Night and the Dukes of Hazzard.
