Netflix Considers Georgia Production Boycott After Abortion Ban

HeadlineMay 29, 2019

Meanwhile, Netflix is the first major studio to threaten a boycott of Georgia in the wake of its passage of a six-week abortion ban earlier this month. Chief content officer Ted Sarandos said Tuesday it would work with the ACLU to fight the law in court and would “rethink [Netflix’s] entire investment in Georgia” if the law goes into effect. High-profile filmmakers and production companies, including Kristen Wiig, David Simon, Mark Duplass, Ron Howard and Killer Films, have said they would boycott Georgia—a major hub for film and television production—because of the new law.
