Where is Lodge 49 filmed?
So Lodge 49 is set in Long Beach, Calif., but most of the show is actually filmed in and around Atlanta, Ga.
"But because of the Georgia incentive, we're able to afford a show that would normally cost a million or $2 million more per episode if it were shot almost anywhere else," he continued.
"There's no question the money that we're offered to bring work to Georgia is one of the big drawing cards... that you can go there and actually put together a group that's at least as skilled as any other city that I've ever worked in the world makes it a pleasure."
What are critics saying about Lodge 49?
What can audiences expect to see in Season 2 of Lodge 49?
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Lodge 49 creator Jim Gavin said, "I think we will be digging into the history of the Lodge itself, and as it relates to the history of Long Beach, and [the city's] aerospace past. How those communities were built around what was once an engine of prosperity — and it’s now an empty space in the center of town."
He continued: "We will continue to tell that story, always with an eye on the fringe places: your strip malls, your service-job community, the highways and byways of industrial plumbing sales. All the things that viewers are clamoring for in this television environment."
Catch the Season 2 premiere of Lodge 49 on August 12 at 10 p.m. on AMC.
