Georgia, Hollywood of the South?

Besides the Peachtree Streets names, Atlanta is known as the “home of reality shows”, from the most watched housewives show franchises, the “Real Housewives of Atlanta”, to doctors and their wives reality show entitled “Married to Medicine, to the upcoming (2017) Daytime Divas, Atlanta is a reality. It’s also a test market for reality shows, recently trialing the reality show “The Preachers” earlier this year. If you can make it here, you can syndicate it anywhere!

“Dish Nation”, a popular entertainment news format syndicated television show is filmed here. Hosted by comedian Ricky Smiley and his team of national celebrities informing viewers of the trending gossip, reporting celebrity news, giving hilarious commentaries and having international stars gracing its studio.

There are very three popular shows from the dark side of the moon filmed here, “The Walking Dead”, The Vampire Diaries” and The Originals. By the way, one day a friend and I were at the Whole Foods on Ponce De Leon and saw actor/model Charles Michael Davis who portrays Marcel Gerard, a vampire turned by Klaus, his former protégé. We found Mr. Davis to be a very pleasant and genuine person!

You will see a number of celebrities spotting throughout Atlanta from the music, television and movie industry. In Atlanta, stars are able to move around freely without being bombarded by the paparazzi and aggressive fans, “Southern Comfort”! That’s a good reason for more celebrities to make Atlanta their second home!

The GPS Experience is an ideal shoot location, and will give you a taste of that “Southern Comfort”, making you feel at home!


Supreme Court Sides With Colorado Baker Who Turned Away Gay Couple

At the same time, Justice Kennedy strongly reaffirmed protections for gay rights.

“The outcome of cases like this in other circumstances must await further elaboration in the courts,” he wrote, “all in the context of recognizing that these disputes must be resolved with tolerance, without undue disrespect to sincere religious beliefs, and without subjecting gay persons to indignities when they seek goods and services in an open market.”

Considering the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision, it becomes clearer, there is a need for a place like the GPS Experience.
We are a LGBT base business organization leasing space to the film, television, and music industry, and providing safe welcoming spaces for the LGBT community. The GPS Experience has a place for community members to meet, dine, wed, and have private events.
