Netflix Won’t Film TV Show in North Carolina Due to State’s Anti-LGBTQ Law

North Carolina’s controversial legislation is impacting Hollywood’s decision to film in the state.

Netflix has opted to film its upcoming North Carolina-set series OBX, a coming-of-age drama set in a fictional town in the state’s Outer Banks, in South Carolina instead due to remnants of North Carolina’s anti-LGBTQ House Bill 2. Best known as “the bathroom bill,” the law requires transgender people use the public restrooms that correspond to the sex on their birth certificate. The legislation first drew criticism when it was enacted in 2016, with some studios even pulling their projects out of the state.
