News: Zombie television show turns Georgia town into tourism hub (April 4, 2013)
The film The Walking Dead has turned the 3,300 resident Georgian town of Senoia, that sits 25 miles south of Atlanta, into a buzzing tourist attraction. Over the past 6 years, 43 businesses were launched in the retail district, which is good news for the town after previously seeing its local cotton and agricultural industries die off years prior.
“Locals credit most of the newfound popularity to the success of the weekly AMC cable network series. The Walking Dead averages 7 million US viewers ages 18 to 49, making it the top-rated drama for that demographic in cable history, according to AMC.”
Other movies and TV series that have filmed in Senoia in the past include Drop Dead Diva, Fried Green Tomatoes, and Sweet Home Alabama.
