J.J. Abrams & Jordan Peele Will Shoot HBO Drama In Georgia But Donate Profits To Fight ‘Fetal Heartbeat’ LawMay 10, 2019
J.J. Abrams and Jordan Peele’s upcoming HBO horror series Lovecraft will film in Georgia, the state under Hollywood’s microscope after it passed a controversial abortion bill this week, but the producers said they will donate their profits to groups that are fighting the so-called “fetal heartbeat” law.
Reps said production on the series will be based in Atlanta but that it will shoot throughout the Peach State.
Here is their statement in full:
“In a few weeks we start shooting our new show, “Lovecraft Country” and will do so standing shoulder to shoulder with the women of Georgia. Governor Kemp’s ‘Fetal Heartbeat’ Abortion Law is an unconstitutional effort to further restrict women and their health providers from making private medical decisions on their terms. Make no mistake, this is an attack aimed squarely and purposely at women. We stand with Stacey Abrams and the hardworking people of Georgia, and will donate 100% of our respective episodic fees for this season to two organizations leading the charge against this draconian law: the ACLU of Georgia and Fair Fight Georgia. We encourage those who are able to funnel any and all resources to these organizations.”
