Summertime is when all the blockbuster movies hit the screen, but it's not usually a busy time for the filming of those projects. 

Still, Hollywood South has certainly been holding its own.

The last couple of months have seen a lot of cameras and action in New Orleans.

"Five feature films have just wrapped, two TV series just finished their latest seasons, and a couple of other projects have been in the prep stages," say Chris Stelly, Executive Director of Louisiana Entertainment.

Those two TV shows just wrapped are the second season of 'Claws' and the third season of 'Preacher', a couple of shows that look like they may have legs.

Shows that will still be filming this summer are the fifth season of NCIS: New Orleans, season three of Queen Sugar, and two new TV shows...'The Purge' and 'Deadlier Than the Male'.

'Roe v. Wade: the Movie', is currently being shot inNew Orleans, with the working title, '1973'.

"This summer season has really been quite busy for us," says Stelly. "And, it looks like the flood gates are about to open for fall."

Stelly says feature films in development to be shot here later this year are 'Walkaway Joe', and 'The Secret' starring Katie Holmes. New Orleans will also serve as host for a new 'Baking Championship' TV series.
