Observer — Hollywood has a very, very big problem on its hands. It’s literally running out of room to make movies and television shows. Before the coronavirus pandemic ground production to a halt, soundstages, where shows and movies are largely filmed, were operating at their highest occupancy capacities in Hollywood history. The ballooning of streaming services and scripted series has put a strain on the supply of spaces needed to meet the ravenous demand of content. Now, if a studio hopes to film on a soundstage, they may have to reserve the space as much as 18 months in advance.

As the film and TV industry attempts to restart after a COVID-19 shutdown, some states like Georgia hope to be trailblazers.
