As a resident of N. Main Street in Memphis, I am again disappointed that TN has let another filming possibility pass by. The state tax IS the reason companies do not film here. I agree about the Nashville comment. Atlanta is actually building a location for film sets just south of the city in order to attract even more moviemakers.
Memphis Beat is another "Southern Insult." Everyone in the South does not have a southern accent. In fact, the ones who do, do not sound like the fake ones on this show. These unrealistic accents remind me of "In The Heat of the Night." (Another show filmed in GA) Nobody sounds like that except women over the age of 65 in Savannah, GA and Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter.
