    An Amazon Studios show that had been slated to shoot in Georgia will no longer do so as a result of the state’s controversial new abortion law.

    Director Reed Morano told Time magazine that although she’d planned to film “The Power,” a new drama based on a novel by Naomi Alderman, in the Savannah area, she has since decided against it.

    For the past few months, employees of the 10-part series had been scouting the region for shooting locations, but after Gov. Brian Kemp signed the “heartbeat” bill into law, Morano pulled them.

    “We had no problem stopping the entire process instantly,” Morano told the magazine. “There is no way we would ever bring our money to that state by shooting there.”

    Amazon could have made their press release more notable by working in the term, “pull out” into having no other choice.

    Hell, no... I'm not giving up...

    Good – shoot it in Lowcountry South Carolina instead.

    Hit Georgia et al in the pocketbook— money is the only thing slimy politicians understand.

      The stupid is powerful down here.  It’s going to take more than one whack with a 2×4 to get the mule’s attention.
