Live Backlot...

To date, 25 motion picture and television productions have taken advantage of Senoia's quaint historic locations as a backdrop for filming, including "Fried Green Tomatoes", "The War", "The Fighting Temptations", "Driving Miss Daisy", "Broken Bridges", "A Christmas Memory", "Pet Sematary II", Tyler Perry's "Meet the Browns" and most recently, the Lifetime television series "Drop Dead Diva" and AMC's "The Walking Dead". 

To capitalize on Senoia’s history as a location for these and other projects, Raleigh Studios - Atlanta has
contributed design expertise to the master plan of the Gin Property, ensuring the layout is conducive to future film and television projects... in some respects, a live 'back lot'. 

Streets of brownstones, while appropriate for an early 1900's southern town, will also allow film companies to approximate or 'cheat' looks from NY boroughs, or cities like Philadelphia, and Chicago, while single family homes will be closer to a page out of Savannah or Charleston. 

Rear alleys to all residences will not only keep garages to the rear of homes, but will allow residents alternate access should a street ever be temporarily closed for filming.

Raleigh will also be responsible for film related tourist attractions in Senoia, such as a recreation of the café from "Fried Green Tomatoes", a film memorabilia museum, and an old fashioned movie theatre for film festivals, premieres, and special private or corporate events.
