The Peacock film Praise This is a musically influenced comedy drama co-written and directed by Tina Gordon. The story follows a gifted singer and musician named Sam who dreams of seeing her name in lights and becoming a professional recording artist. The story is filmed in Atlanta, and there is a rich legacy of music that is used evocatively in the making of the movie.

The production team behind Praise This would have a base in Metro Atlanta, the Atlanta Metropolitan Area, and this locale would be the primary production location for the movie. To list the number of films made in and around this area would be exhausting, but Atlanta has a long and prestigious history of TV and movies utilizing the filming locations available here.

Atlanta, Georgia, also has a monolithic connection to music and is often known as the capital of hip-hop, R&B, and gospel music. This meant that there was never any doubt that the film would be made on location in Atlanta.

Once again, this is another classic landmark that eagle-eyed viewers might be able to spot during the film’s production.

Producer Will Packer is from Georgia and has stated that he always wanted the film to be made in his home state of Georgia.

Georgia also has a production-friendly tax incentive program, so many projects are filmed in the Peach State.
