- Slow news week in ATLwood, but other parts of Georgia are not so disappointing - TWO (!) "Harry Potter" alums (Rupert Grint a.k.a. Ron Weasley and Alan Rickman a.k.a. Severus Snape) have signed on for "CBGB," a film about the iconic NY club. The film is set to shoot in Savannah starting on at the end of June.
- Want to see some behind the scenes action for "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta"? Here's a video of the cast filming at Pearl Bistro earlier this week.
- Both Harry Wanye Casey (founder and leader of KC and the Sunshine Band) and singer Colbie Caillat were spotted at Whiskey Blue at the W Atlanta over the weekend (though not together - wouldn't that be something?).
- The payoff of so much filming here in the past year (though not currently ... ::crickets::) is finally here! Five, yes five, Georgia-filmed TV series will premiere this summer: "Drop Dead Diva," "Teen Wolf," "Necessary Roughness," "Lovetown, USA" and the Tyler Perry series "For Better or Worse." Check your listings and set those DV-Rs!
- Random Fact: Did you know the game show "Family Feud," hosted by Steve Harvey, is shot at the Atlanta Civic Center? #TheMoreYouKnow
- In case you hadn't heard, the ATL-filmed "Ring of Fire," (the Lifetime movie about June Carter Cash) is still casting for a few roles.
