Chernin Entertainment Keeps Productions in Georgia, Will Donate to Fight Abortion Bill

May 15, 2019 / DAVE MCNARY

Chernin Entertainment has announced it will keep its “Fear Street” trilogy and “P-Valley” TV series in Georgia while donating to oppose the state’s controversial “heartbeat” bill — which would ban abortions after six weeks of pregnancy — signed by Georgia Governor Brian Kemp. The move mirrors recent actions by Jordan Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions and J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions, which announced on May 10 that their HBO series “Lovecraft Country” would continue to shoot in Georgia as planned, but money from the production would be donated to two charities fighting the anti-abortion law. Indie producers Christine Vachon (“Carol”) and Mark Duplass (“Creep”) have expressed outrage over HB 481, which would outlaw abortions after the detection of a fetal heartbeat.
