DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — The city of Dothan has entered into an agreement with Hollywood South Studios to lease the old Young Junior High School building.

Hollywood South Studios is a movie production company that has been in Dothan for several months now, that has been using various facilities to produce its movies.

Now, they plan to use the old school building as a production studio. Dothan City Manager Kevin Cowper says could be a big economic boom for the city.

“We are looking at this as an economic development opportunity,” Cowper said. “Movie production is big business. It’s certainly big business in Georgia and Louisiana and we are seeing what they’re doing with those types of facilities. So we’re excited about what the future holds here.”

The lease agreement between the city of Dothan and Hollywood South Studios is for one year.
