ATLwood: J.J. Abrams sparks a Revolution

J.J. Abrams new NBC show, filmed in Atlanta. Ok so that skyline is not ours, but that kudzu is!
  • J.J. Abrams' new NBC show, filmed in Atlanta. Ok so that skyline is not ours, but that kudzu is!


— The Georgia-filmed "What to Expect When You're Expecting" (starring ... basically half of Hollywood) comes out today - are you planning to go see it? The film prominently features (and actually appears to take place in) our fair city.

— Director Jeff Reyes is set to direct Atlanta rapper Waka Flocka Flame's next music video in Dunwoody and Alpharetta, news that ties in to how music producers and studio owners hope to capitalize on the expanded Georgia filming tax credit.

— Apparently it was a poorly kept secret that "Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta" filmed Tuesday at ATL Live, which featured Case, Tank, J. Holiday, R.L., Benzino, and fellow “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” cast member and super producer Stevie J. Also in attendance were Peter Thomas (RHOA), Mishon, Chanita foster, Daron Jones (112), Keri Hilson, Floyd Mayweather, Chilli (TLC), Dondria, DJ Trauma, Erica Dixon (Lil Scrappy’s Baby Mother/Love & Hip Hop Atlanta) and Kenny Burns (who hosted the event).

— Check out the trailer for NBC's new J.J. Abrams series "The Revolution," filmed in Atlanta.

— The AJC reports that "Atlanta official say movie filming at Civic Center has brought in more than $1 million over last year and a half" [via ‏‪@ajcatlantanews‬].

Current Filming

— "I.D. Theft," starring Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy, filmed at the View Point Condos on Peachtree Street Wednesday.

— Also on Wednesday, "Drop Dead Diva" filmed at Emory University (there was a casting call for "professor types" a few weeks ago. I'm intrigued …)

Casting Calls

— Hylton Casting is seeking extras for the BET Pilot “Second Generation Wayans," filming May 21-25 in Atlanta.

— "Necessary Roughness" needs nerds
