Netflix says it will continue to film in Georgia amid controversy surrounding the state’s passage of an abortion law forbidding termination of a pregnancy after an indication of a heartbeat.

But the company said it would rethink its investment in Georgia should the bill go into effect. The statement comes as some in the film and TV industry have said they will boycott working in the state because of the law.

“We have many women working on productions in Georgia, whose rights, along with millions of others, will be severely restricted by this law,” Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos in a statement sent to CNBC Tuesday. “It’s why we will work with the ACLU and others to fight it in court. Given the legislation has not yet been implemented, we’ll continue to film there — while also supporting partners and artists who choose not to. Should it ever come into effect, we’d rethink our entire investment in Georgia.”

Last week, CNBC reported the state’s up to 30% tax credits lured more than 450 film and television projects last fiscal year, driving more than $4.5 billion in wages and a greater than $9.5 billion economic impact, citing Georgia’s governor’s office. Projects included Disney’s “Black Panther” and “Avengers: Infinity War,” AMC’s “The Walking Dead” and Netflix’s “Ozark.” Netflix has also shot shows including “Queer Eye” and “The Haunting of Hill House” in Georgia in recent years.

Actors including Mark Duplass have pledged to boycott filming in Georgia “until they reverse this backwards legislation,” Duplass tweeted earlier this month. “Ozark” star Jason Bateman has also said he’d no longer work in Georgia if the legislation “makes it through the court system.” Meanwhile, some in the production community argue that taking work from locals doesn’t do much in the way of fighting state laws, instead hurting local workers.


  1. who do these people think they are?

  2. Leading "feminists" are old Ethnic Hags that hate seeing Gentile Babies.
    The people behind the progressive feminist movement have all-but destroyed the normal family unit (Rothchild, Rockefeller and his elite pals wanted to put women to work so they could tax both adults in the household, but on top of that, working women are less likely to reproduce than stay-at-home-moms
    If an ILLEGAL puts one foot into America THEY get full Constitutional Rights and will be defended by ACLU & SPLC.
    If an ILLEGAL’s BABY gets BORN/one foot into America THEY get full Constitutional Rights and will be defended by ACLU & SPLC.
    If a Duly Born American Child puts one foot in America they DO NOT have Constitutional Rights!? They can be MURDERED without legal representation ? Where are all the LeftWing lawyers dashing to represent the Babies and demand their RIGHTS? Where are the ACLU & SPLC?

  3. Bolshevik GODS who happen to be Communists......

  4. Barry and Michelle sitting in a tree, S-U-B-V-E-R-T
    (and baby Susan makes three)

  5. Looks like I'm might need to cancel my Netflix account

  6. Sounds like Netflix is owned and run by Communist Jews who want every American woman to have at least a dozen abortions so they can fill this country up with their replacements they want to send here to control them in their new Communist Utopia formerly America..... screw the new anti abortion law....just another excuse for them to control this country....

  7. Imagine being THAT committed to seeing little girls and boys torn to shreds by abortion. You want to BOYCOTT them being born instead!

  8. I am so so glad I cancelled my Netflix account as soon as I heard Susan Rice was on their board! They've moved from the movie business to progressive politics. Never looked back!
